Donations needed for new WVUSD Transition Program
WALNUT, CA-- Walnut Valley Unified School District will launch the Hockwalt Resource & Transition Training Center (HARTT Center), for the 2013-14 school year.
The HARTT Center serves 18-22 year old students with disabilities who are receiving a Certificate of Completion from high school and have significant needs for support as they transition to adulthood.
The HARTT Center aids in the development of a continuum of transition skills based each student’s unique level of ability with the goal of successfully transitioning to adult living. Skills are developed using community-based instruction in addition to classroom instruction.
WVUSD is seeking tax-deductible donations from the community for a kitchen that will be set up at the Center on Lemon Avenue in Walnut.
Donations of dishes, cookware, silverware, utensils, dishes, placemats and napkins are now being accepted.
The District is also looking for local businesses that would be able to provide possible work experience placements.
Please contact Judi Koorndyk, Coordinator of Special Education, at email@example.com, if you would like to donate or get information about helping provide work experience for the students.
