Home & Career Skills is a New York State mandated course designed to teach everyday living skills to students in grades 6 and 8. Sixth graders are scheduled for 10 weeks and eighth graders for 20 weeks.
Home & Careers is a program of instruction designed to prepare students to meet their present and future responsibilities as well understand their opportunities as parents or other member of families, consumers, home managers and wage earners. The emphasis of this course is to use a hands-on, experimental approach to learning. Diverse learning experiences will come in the form of both individual and group activities to best meet the needs of the learner.
Due to the nature of this class, students may be asked to bring in project materials or a fee may be imposed to defray the costs of a project and/or food costs. As many supplies as possible will be provided by the school. A sewing project and food labs are planned.
