Life Skills Program

Life Skills Program

In addition to our alternative high school program, the Learning Center will also provide a new program for our special education students. For some of our district special education students, a focus of their educational program is the ability to live and work independently after high school. For these students, they need opportunities to plan meals, go grocery shopping, cook their meals, do laundry, make beds, and do other activities to live on their own. The district simply does not have a facility that addresses these needs with the students. The Learning Center will provide that opportunity.

In the back portion of the current Commerce Bank building, we will be renovating the restrooms and kitchenette area to include an efficiency-type apartment classroom where our life skills students from not only IVC High School, but CEC, Mossville, and South will be able to work on all of these life skills that will help prepare them for the workforce and independent living. While these students will not be housed at the Learning Center, their teachers will be able to transport them to Kroger and then the Learning Center to work on these vital tasks. We are very excited to be able to offer this new learning opportunity to these students as well!
