Student Work Supervision

The Vocational Training Department at JM Murray provides an opportunity specifically for students with disabilities to bridge the gap between school and the world of work.

The Student Work Supervision Program offers vocational training and work experience on a part-time basis for high school students with disabilities. The program is designed to assist students in transitioning from school to work by collaborating with the student’s school, teachers, family, and VESID (Vocational and Educational Services for Individuals with Disabilities) counselor.
