Millet Learning Center educators have a commitment to developing essential life skills in all students within a caring and supportive school community using the highest educational standards. Staff are highly trained to provide care and education to students with needs that are not as fully understood in more typical school settings. Staff use research and evidence-based best practices in their approach to providing up-to-date instructional methods that accomplish relevant student goals in partnership with parents. Continuous improvement in what we do is a strong component of Millet Learning Center's program. Staff continuously search out, examine, and implement better ways to accomplish student learning and care in a manner that is responsive to family concerns. To the extent possible, integration into the community and other school environments is actively pursued in an effort to better assist later life transition goals for all students. This program is designed to get students living and working in the community as independently as possible by focusing on four key areas:
Personal adjustments: Developing personal and social skills needed for the workplace, daily living, homemaking, personal health and appearance capabilities; and mobility and communications skills.
Pre-vocational training: Creating a sense of self-awareness and an assessment of realistic potential; exploring career options; building basic literacy and computer skills.
Vocational training: Beginning vocational training depending on the level of ability, degree of independence, and supervision needed.
Transition to the workplace: Establishing degrees of independence and providing on-going support, follow-up, and monitoring.
