The In-School Work Adjustment Program will help prepare eligible students for competitive employment while in school; thereby, shortening the transition period from school to work. The program will be used to determine a student’s vocational potential for specific jobs as it relates to his/her vocational goal (IPE). It can help identify and develop abilities and skills the student possesses. Participation in the program can foster positive work habits, and appropriate attitudes/ behavior toward work. The student can learn appropriate personal and social attitudes necessary to function successfully in the work place. The program can also be used to eliminate negative attitudes which may be detrimental to future employment. The student may be able to learn specific jobs related to vocational classes they are involved in. Finally, the program provides opportunity for guidance and counseling by a supervisor on a daily basis and by the Vocational Rehabilitation (VR) Counselor per case requirements.
