The Ballston Spa Work Based Learning Program offers opportunities for students to gain supervised, hands on experience in the world of work.  In conjunction with their high school coursework, this program promotes the development of employability skills so that students are better prepared to enter the workforce upon graduating from high school. Both organizations have been instrumental in providing meaningful work sites for students in the program during the first year of implementation in Ballston Spa, district officials said.

Contact Matthew L. Wright, Supervisor for Ballston Spa Secondary Special Education, for details of the Work Based Learning Program, how to become a community work site or any additional information at (518) 884-7200 ext. 4317.
