      is to promote the involvement of key stakeholders
    (students, families, WA I Staff, educators, youth serving organizations, workforce development organizations, post-secondary education and training, and business partners) 
     
    in planning and implementing an array of services
     
    that will culminate in successful student transition
     
    to competitive, integrated employment (CIE), lifelong
     
    learning, and quality adult life. 
     
     
    *WorkAbility I achieves this mission primarily by providing work-based learning experience for all WorkAbility I students.*
     

     

    Pre-Employment Workshops

    Folsom Cordova Unified School District utilizes an integrated curriculum, which includes business ethics, career interest exploration, future planning, computer skills (including the use of the internet), and phases of the job search. Students learn to build a career portfolio that will help take them into college and employment. WorkAbility I Students who are ready to enter the workplace learn many additional employment skills such as completing job applications, interviewing skills, and even “Surviving a Panel Interview”.

     
    Employment

    Folsom Cordova Unified School District offers many off-campus employment opportunities such as working in various retail stores, local theaters, restaurants, fast food establishments, and many more. Junior, senior and A.C.T.T. students attend our pre-employment workshops to help promote successful employment situations and to increase their chances of positive employment opportunities in the future. 

    Folsom Cordova Unified School District also offers limited on-campus employment opportunities.
