WorkAbility I Staff:
Senior Director, Student Success
Transition Specialist, ORHS
WorkAbility is an employment development and training program available to all special education students within the El Dorado Union High School District. We assist students in their preparation for successful transition from high school to adult life. Students are served through a variety of in-class lessons, career exploration activities and job placements.
WorkAbility is a partnership between families, school, local agencies, and the local business community. Because not all students are expected to find or want employment while in high school, the focus of WorkAbility I is on work readiness skills, preparation for eventual employment and planning for life after high school.
If you have a place of business in the El Dorado County area and you could use some student assistance, please contact us about becoming a WorkAbility I Business Partner! A Business Partnership is a strong and realistic commitment between business, education and the community consisting of clearly defined goals, mutual benefits, and open ongoing communication.
