The Indiana School for the Deaf has been working in conjunction with Washington Township Schools’ J. Everett Light Career Center to provide intensive vocational training to students who identify that they would like to leave high school with national board certification in their chosen vocational field. The J. Everett Light program lasts for two years. Some programs have specific prerequisites for enrollment. See your Guidance Counselor for specific grade level requirements.
JEL Career Center classes relate academic subjects to the “real world of work”. Students learn in a classroom specifically designed to resemble the related work atmosphere. The Career Center uses state-of-the-art equipment, computer programs and teaching techniques to give students the “hands on” experiences that students usually don’t experience until they enroll in post-secondary institutions.
Students can earn elective high school credits for JELCC courses. Upon passing a course for the semester, a student can earn three credits for a three-hour course and two credits for a two-hour course. ISD will add these credits to the transcript.
