Ill. district expands vocational program for students with disabilities

09/22/2013 | Northwest Herald (Crystal Lake, Ill.)

A high school in Crystal Lake, Ill., can now offer vocational training for nearly 60 students with disabilities, thanks to the addition of four new classrooms. The spaces have desks, kitchens and other equipment to teach job skills to students, who can remain in the program until their 22nd birthday. "We've been able to double our vocational training, which is a huge component, because we all go to school with the idea it will help us get a job to support ourselves," said Sandy Whelan, special-education assistant division leader for the program that could accept only 23 students at a time before the increase in space.
