18-21 Programming

The district works hard to ensure student needs are met. We have a variety of options related to transition programming. Decisions are made at IEP meetings and resources are chosen based on need and best fit to transition planning. Below are some resources the district currently utilizes. Please note that the district may customize programming as needed to best meet the needs of the student. 

Madonna:

This program operates daily both on campus and throughout the community. The goal is to advance students through five core learning domains which are: functional academics, independent living, career/vocational training, community mobility, and recreation/leisure. As the student enters their last year of transition, students may be part of Project SEARCH with Madonna. 

Project SEARCH

Project SEARCH is a partnership between Nebraska Vocational Rehab, a business, area school systems, the Commission for the Blind and Visually Impaired, Assistive Technology Partnership, and Division of Developmental Disabilities. This one-year school-to-work program is business-led and takes place entirely in the workplace. The experience includes a combination of classroom instruction, job exploration, and hands-on training through worksite rotations.
 
Goodwill Transition Program:

This program is traditionally for students in their senior year of high school. This program offers work experience to students as part of the Goodwill organization.
