During the Junior and/or Senior year, special education students in the pre-vocational program may be placed in a series of jobs in the community setting. This is intended to give students the exposure and experience of working in the community, plus in certain instances other specific vocational training. During this time, students will also be making judgments about jobs they like and dislike.

A placement in the community is not only secured through the efforts of the pre vocational coordinator but also with certain commitment from the students. The coordinator does not get the job for the student, but finds job openings and sets up interviews. It is the student who gets the job through the application and interview process. To be eligible for the credit, the student must work an average of 10 to 20 hours per week. One full credit may be earned during the Junior and/or Senior year toward meeting requirements for graduation.
