Empowering futures: Superintendent celebrates HHS academy's success in job skills training
Houston High School takes great pride in hosting the HHS Transition to Work Academy, a distinguished program recognized by the state, specifically designed for students with disabilities. This innovative academy seamlessly integrates traditional classroom instruction with hands-on job skills training, equipping students for the challenges of the real world. Each week, students explore diverse work-based learning environments, ranging from local hotspots like Huey's and Dogtopia to contributing their talents to nearby churches and preschools. A distinctive feature of the program is the weekly tradition of acknowledging an outstanding "Employee of the Week," not only celebrating student accomplishments but also reinforcing essential job skills. The recent participation of our Superintendent in this tradition added an extra layer of excitement, underscoring the academy's profound impact on student development and its integral role in fostering community engagement. Houston High School remains committed to nurturing the growth and success of every student through innovative and inclusive initiatives like the HHS Transition to Work Academy.
