Own your learning:
Our students will help to develop a plan for pre-employment students The pre-employment program is designed to give young adults, who dropped out of school or have graduated HS but have little direction, the life skills and attitude to become part of the community. The program is designed to include the community and business partners to ensure success for the individual. Needs of the young adult will be assessed; such as transportation, family commitments, legal and others to make the training possible and successful. We look for young adults that have:
o a positive Attitude:
o a good Aptitudes for doing certain kinds of things easily and quickly.
Student ownership- learning mindset concept:
Students control and manage their learning process. This includes things you are interested in doing outside of the classroom such as getting into a college, a passion or a career.
Ownership to learning means that a learner is motivated, engaged and self-directed. It means they can monitor their own progress and are able to reflect on their learning based on mastery of content. ... For every learner to begin to understand how they learn, we need to turn to Universal Design for Learning (UDL).Nov 18, 2018

What students really need from education.
In an age of information overload, kids need more than the
ability to recall facts and parrot popular arguments. More
Lauren contended in 2017, is their ability to wade through
noise, discern facts, analyze perspectives, and develop their
own expertise. As she noted, “one of the most powerful tools
anyone can harness is the single-minded pursuit of mastering how
