Community Based Experience
The EPIC programs gives students the opportunity to take part in community based instruction, where they are able to go out into the community and experience real life education. The students are bused into the community where they have the opportunity to take part in shopping and other community experiences. They learn to gather items on a shopping list budget, budget their money and bag their own groceries. The community outings go beyond shopping and have allowed students to go to local fairs, apple picking and museums. This past year, the community outings has brought about some community service, where the students donated canned food as well as food they had cooked to a local homeless shelter. Overall, the experience allows the students to become a member of society and enjoy the opportunities around them.
