Transition – New Look, Same Vision!

Project Bridges and Transition Services remain a bedrock of our Cotting curriculum, even as we continue to reimagine the programs within COVID-19 parameters. Students are keeping busy learning all about jobs, building relationships with colleagues, and self-advocacy among other topics. Nothing beats getting out into the community, but the staff and students have managed to build a fun, progressive new look for the program! Several students are busy with jobs around the school, including sorting, filing, jewelry assembly, and building hygiene kits to donate to local agencies. Others are offering a hand with sanding projects in the Industrial Arts classroom, or contributing around the building with janitorial and cleaning responsibilities. Maintaining and progressing around the key elements of vocation will enable our students to jump back into the workplace even more prepared, when safe to do so.

Remote Partnerships have continued! We’re lucky to have great partnerships with several organizations, many of whom have spent some zoom time with us over the past year:

Perkins Radio DJ Maurice zooms in with our students to show us his records and share what his job is like.
