The Next Step program at Manheim Central provides students with disabilities job experiences, community awareness skills, and independent living skills in a house setting. Through the non-traditional classroom setting, students receive functional academics to increase the skill sets needed for a job. With supports available, students are assisted on the job to monitor safety and assure tasks at hand are being successfully completed. Representatives from Manheim Central School District and OVR will showcase the successful completion of the first year of the Next Step Program. Information will be shared about the development, challenges, and individual accomplishments of students and staff.
