October is National Disability Employment Awareness Month

October is National Disability Employment Awareness Month! Did you know that SMUHSD has a team of transition specialists in its Special Education department whose focus is to support students aged 16+ with employment and career preparation.
 
This team collaborates with local employers to provide entry-level work-based learning opportunities for SMUHSD students with disabilities.
 
Student wages are paid by the Department of Vocational Rehabilitation and CDE’s WorkAbility grant for up to 100 hours of exploratory work experience.
