Partially Integrated Community Classes at GWW

Students may be referred to one of our four Community Class programs through a centralized IPRC process. These specialized classes offer highly individualized programming to meet a range of social, emotional, academic and personal development goals.

Intensive Program - Foundational & Transitional
Previously referred to as "Jr." and "Sr.", the names of the two branches of the Intensive program have been updated to better reflect the programming focus and goals of each level. 
  • The Foundational Intensive class focuses on building core learning, organizational and executive functioning skills as well as student self-awareness, self-regulation and social-emotional coping skills. Students may work toward building the skills and independence necessary to transition into credit-bearing classes either full or part-time, and will often continue working on their personal development goals in the Transitional program.
  • The Transitional Intensive class focuses on building independence as well as functional academic and life skills in order to help students work toward a successful postsecondary transition. Students in this class participate in authentic experiential learning opportunities such as community Work Experience placements and may work toward their OSSC by taking elective credit-bearing courses.

Developmental Disability (DD) Program
  • This non-credit program emphasizes the devlopment of functional literacy, numeracy and personal life skills such as money management, transit training, community exploration, social skills and work experience. Students work toward individualized alternative curriculum expectations in a balanced program that focuses on building independence and working toward personalized, meaningful goals. 

Autism Program
  • ​​This non-credit program offers highly individualized programming and intensive support for students with a primary diagnosis of autism. Students work toward alternative curriculum expectations that focus on the developiment of communication and life skills, functional numeracy and literacy as well as daily living and self-regulation skills.
