Job Training

  • Job Training The Job Training program is a two-year program providing opportunities for students with disabilities to perform entry-level job readiness skills in preparation for all ranges of employment after high school. Students will be provided transportation to and from their home school and to community job locations. Current job sites include University Hospitals Parma Medical Center, Baldwin Wallace University, Seven Hills Recreation Center, Seven Hills City Hall, Winking Lizard Tavern, Cuyahoga Community College and the Salvation Army. Students receive classroom instruction reinforcing appropriate work site behavior, safety, sanitation, and grooming. Students are placed in positions according to skill level and then rotated through the multiple positions available at the teacher’s discretion. Initially, students will work along side the instructor or employees with a goal of independence in many cases. Student participation in this program requires an Individualized Education Program (IEP).
