Practicing for Post-Secondary Success
With these funds I will purchase the Practical Assessment Exploration System (PAES) lab. The PAES lab is a work development lab where students become employees and teachers become employers. We will use the PAES lab to assess a student's competitive work potential and interest level, while simultaneously exploring various jobs, using real tools, and developing proper work behaviors in the following five areas: computer technology, construction/industrial, processing/production, consumer, service and business/marketing.
This lab will be accessed by our Low Incidence Program which supports approximately 80 students who are in grades 7-12+ (students often stay until they are 21 years old).
Back Up Plan
If we do not reach our goal I will continue to program for our students post-secondary plans.
