Community-Based Training (CBT) is a Florence One Schools program involving students from South Florence, West Florence, and Wilson High School. The intent of the program is to teach students quality work habits and skills. Students who are enrolled in the Credential program are eligible to work at various business sites in the community. Students who are enrolled in Employability Education IV (Mrs. Andrews) and Employability Education III (Mrs. Heiden) are eligible for Community Based Work Experiences. Students in the SC Credential Program have to complete at least 360 work experience hours in a field that is aligned with their IGP/IEP.
Students are assigned to business sites based on the time they are scheduled to be at the Advantage Academy Our morning group will report to the business sites between the hours of 9:15am - 11:15am. Our afternoon group will report to business site between the hours of 12:35pm - 1:35pm. We have three transition assistants who transport and monitor students at the business sites.
