The LifeSkills class is geared toward grade 8 - 12 age level students who have intellectual disabilities. They are placed in the program through a referral to Central Screening at the District level.
The emphasis is on functional academics, socialization and commendation skills to enable students to be as independent as possible.
Work experience placements and volunteer activities are integral to the program as they provide the context for fostering a good work ethic and social skills.
All the students have an IEP, and work toward their specific educational goals.
Students graduate with a school leaving certificate.
