Skyline High School’s Community Based Instruction Program

8 May 2019

We were in the studio today with Sally Meredith & Sarah Griffin, Special Education teachers at Skyline High School to talk about their Community Based Instruction program. The class practices skills such as budgeting, making healthy food choices, and appropriate social skills by going to local area restaurants.  They explore our community by going to local area businesses such as grocery stores, the movie theater and the bowling alley.  They practice vocational skills through partnerships with local area businesses. If your business is interested in a partnership, please reach out via email to Sally: smeredith@wcps.k12.va.us or Sarah: sgriffith@wcps.k12.va.us

Mary, Sam & Edwin, students in the program, also joined us in the studio to talk about their favorite things in the program and what their goals are after graduation. We talked about the coffee shop and crock pot meals businesses the students run within the school and the skills it provides them for working after they leave Skyline High School.
