“WE GROW”

 

WE GROW (Growing Reliable Organic Wisdom) is a program located at the Okaloosa Technical College and CHOICE High School, established to serve the Career and Technical Education (CTE) needs for high school students with disabilities. The program is a school-based enterprise that provides a learning environment which links students to the community-at-large as well as on-the-job training. Students gain the skills and knowledge necessary to work and live independently. Students in the program can earn school-based certifications in the following areas: Housekeeping Services; Custodial Services; Automobile Detailing; Lawn Maintenance Services; and Gardening Services.    In 2016-17, all student participants showed increased interest in career and technical education and all made progress toward completing certification, with two-thirds completing and passing certification requirements.
