High School Program

In planning your high school program of study, select a full range of core academic courses and pursue a rigorous academic level of study. Thinking of high school courses in relation to the 16 Career Clusters described on page 4 can help you to focus on career planning and guide in the selection of courses and electives. Include carefully selected electives to support your plans for post-secondary education and to develop a career pathway. Your school counselors and high school career counselors will administer and help you to relate results of a variety of career interest and ability inventories with courses that can support your academic and career plans.

Individualized Education Plans for Special Education

All students with disabilities who are eligible for special education services participate in the secondary curriculum according to their Individualized Educational Plans (IEP). A variety of services and supports are provided based on students’ strengths, preferences, interests and needs.

Transition plans are developed as a part of the IEP for all students in special education beginning at the age of fourteen and focus on education, employment, and  adult/community living. The purpose of the transition plan is to specify services such as career awareness, vocational evaluation, vocational training, community based vocational education, adult agency linkages, or other services appropriate for the student to meet post-secondary goals.
