Community-Based Instruction Program
Our Community Based Instruction Program (CBI) has proven to be very beneficial to the students here in Apollo-Ridge School District. Community-Based Instruction is for students in grades 6-12 who have an Individualized Education Plan (IEP). The goal of CBI is to provide students "real-life work experiences" in the community setting and to give students hands-on activities to help them acquire the skills they need to be successful in the "real world" after graduation. The Apollo-Ridge School District has partnered with various local businesses to ensure this vital program is successful and attainable for all students.
In addition to the CBI trips (2x per month), students will be participating in a transition curriculum that will teach a variety of skills that they will need to obtain employment and have a successful transition from high school to the "real world".
Skills included in our transition curriculum will include but are not limited to the following topics:
- interview skills
- mock interviews
- meal prep/planning
- job application/form completion
- independent living
- medication management
- preparing foods
- managing a household/chores
- banking skills
- community skills
- communication skills
- telephone skills
Students are assessed by school staff using a workplace rubric.
CBI dates are located on my calendar.
