Teaching and guiding students to be successful after high school both intellectually and practically includes providing special needs students with vocational skills for independence at home and in the workplace. Through this grant, equipment and small appliances will be purchased that will allow students in grades 9 through 12 at Hall High School to learn skills and have regular exposure to simulated activities that they may face during high school and beyond. The funds will support the purchase of items such as a blender, coffee maker or toaster oven for use in simulating both a home environment and a workplace. Using this equipment, faculty will customize vocational instruction based on each individual student’s skill level.
