Student Support Services
Four County Career Center offers several options for all students to get assistance with their education needs:
* Extra Help - several academic teachers make themselves available before and after school to provide assistance.
* In accordance with individual teachers' late/missing work policy, students may have opportunities to attend makeup sessions during each grading period. This could mean missing 1 or more class periods or lab for the scheduled makeup session.
Special Education Services
Four County Career Center is committed to serving students with disabilities and helping them unlock their full potential. The professionals at Four County Career Center and the associate school, along with the parents and students, work together to determine the best individualized education program.
The process often begins with a career assessment, consisting of interest inventories, aptitude testing and observations to help determine career options. A team of Four County Career Center and associate school staff meet to consider these results along with other pertinent information to determine the most appropriate program placement. Best practice dictates that a Four County Career Center representative be involved in the IEP/transition meeting in which the placement decision is made.
Four County Career Center offers a continuum of services/programs to individually meet the wide spectrum of student needs, from the mild to intensive intervention. If placement in a typical career and technical program is deemed appropriate, the services of a Vocational Special Education Coordinator (VOSE) are available to students to provide program accommodations/modifications as determined in the IEP or 504 plan. For students requiring more intensive assistance, Work Transitions and Job Training programs are available.
All career-technical education programs follow the district's policies of non-discrimination on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex, gender identity and disability in all programs, services, activities and employment. The lack of English language proficiency is not a barrier to admission or participation.
