Programs Designed for Students with Disabilities
JOB TRAINING
Credit: 3.5 elective per year
 
This program is designed to help students with disabilities obtain, maintain and advance in competitive, community-based employment. The program assists students in making the transition from school to work and, when appropriate, coordinates job placement efforts with cooperative adult service providers such as: The Rehabilitation Services Commission, which includes the Bureau of Vocational Rehabilitation (BVR), and Bureau of Visually Impaired (BVI), and Cuyahoga and Summit County Boards of Developmental Disabilities. Placement of students with disabilities in this program is an Individualized Education Plan (IEP) Team decision. Placement in the program can be repeated as necessary to meet individual needs, but annual re-application is required.

SALES & SERVICE FUNDAMENTALS
Credit: 3.5 elective per year
 
This is a marketing education program designed to provide students with the knowledge, skills, and attitudes necessary for a successful transition to a service occupation. During the first year students learn skills related to human relations, basic economics and basic employability skills. During the second year, students learn skills related to four general areas: promotion, selling, distribution, computer operations and hospitality services. In both years the competencies needed to make the transition to work or to regular career-technical training are also addressed. Students receive practical application work experiences both in-house at CVCC and at community-based training sites at area businesses. Placement of students with disabilities in the program is through the IEP process. Placement in the program can be repeated as necessary to meet individual needs, but annual re-application is required.

TRANSITION TO WORK
Credit: 3.5 elective per year
 
Students in Transition to Work develop appropriate work behaviors, employability skills and social skills for the workplace. This is done through simulated work and piecework in Transition to Work PM and work at non-paid, community-based training sites in Transition to Work AM. Placement of students with disabilities in the program is an IEP team decision. A transition plan indicating that community-based employment is a reasonable outcome is required. Either section of the program can be repeated as necessary to meet individual needs, but annual re-application and appropriate consideration of program referral guidelines is required.
