Should work based learning experiences for special populationâ€™s students be tied to industry standards?
If the ARD determines industry standard are appropriate for this student. Work-Based Learning (WBL) is an effective approach in delivering career and technical education and training to youth with disabilities. The WBL approach provides these services in community workplace settings rather than in conventional school environments. Because WBL activities take place in workplace settings, they must comply with the provisions of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) administered through the U.S. Department of Labor and state labor laws. The determination should be based on the individual student’s needs, taking into account the student’s preferences and interests. WBL would be considered a major change in placement for most students and would require a change in the IEP. The education agency must invite the student to any meetings considering transition services or participation in work-related training.
