Transition to Work Program
Lakota special needs students receive valuable work experience through the district’s Transition to Work Program. The program offers high school and post-secondary students, with an identified disability, an opportunity to practice employability skills while earning credit towards graduation. Currently, more than 60 students ranging in age from 14 to 22 spend time each day working part-time at nearly 30 area job sites.
“Our work study program is second to none, and it truly connects students to real world learning. It prepares students both socially and emotionally for what’s going to come after high school.”
Andrea Longworth, Lakota’s Executive Director of Special Services
