SKILL - opening the doors to success
SKILL is a program for 18-26 year old students in the Avondale School District who have a disability. Curriculum focuses on vocational independence and self-sufficiency. Students work each day to build daily living skills, communication skills, practical math and functional literacy proficiency, knowledge of personal safety and civic responsibility, and social adeptness.
In addition, emphasis is placed on developing hard and soft marketable skills so that our students can compete in the real-world employment market. Businesses have an opportunity to partner with SKILL in two ways:

The Avondale SKILL Program delivers an educational experience that enables 18 - 26 year old students with a disability to live an independent life and become vocationally independent within the parameters of their personal goals.
The Avondale SKILL Program will provide learning that addresses each student's interests and abilities to ensure personal independence. SKILL will be a dynamic place that allows for changes in instructional delivery to meet the needs of a student population that is diverse in their disabilities and their abilities to learn and grow. SKILL will engage community members and families in reaching the program's ultimate goal of developing students who have the tools to build an independent life in their home community.
