The Career Assessment Center offers services for students with or without special needs. Any student 14 years or older can attend. Special needs students (i.e., IEP, 504) will receive priority.
Students are assigned to various work samples relating to their interests. Work performance and behaviors are observed and recorded under controlled conditions.
At the completion of the assessment a detailed report is written for each student containing work behaviors, interests and job skills. This report, along with specific recommendations for employment, training, or supportive services, is reviewed at the conference held at the student’s associate school.
Teachers, work-study coordinators, guidance counselors, psychologist and school principals refer students. Parents/guardians complete and sign referral forms indicating permission for assessment. Forms are usually signed at the IEP conference in the spring. Current emergency authorization form is mandatory.
