Transition Services Presentation
 
Transition Services  
 
Director of Special Services Patricia Piserchia, Transition Coordinator Jeanette Dodds-Pofahl and Job Developer Kim Mileszko gave a presentation to the Board of Education about the Lenape District Transition Services Program. This program provides students the ability to work in real-world working environments outside of the school setting. The goal is for the students to experience as many different jobs as possible and to have the skills learned at these job sites transfer with them after graduation. The program started during the 2006-2007 school year with only 14 students, 11 sub-contracted job coaches and 15 employers. As of this school year, the program has grown to 43 students, 32 job coaches (now hired and trained by the LRHSD) and 55 employers. The Transition Services Program also holds an annual LRHSD Job Fair and Dress for Success Program that both regular education and special education students can attend. This past June, the program also held its first Transition Services Awards Ceremony, where both the students and employers who were a part of this program were recognized for their efforts.
