PAES is a hands on Comprehensive Work Development Curriculum that sets up in a typical sized school classroom. PAES operates in a simulated work environment. Students become employees; teachers become supervisors. Strict procedures are followed so students get the feel of real work, at the same time learn and explore new career vocational areas. Each area has a comprehensive array of tasks for the students to perform. The instructor monitors the tasks and provides feedback and assistance where needed. Students completing PAES have a thorough knowledge of many job skills and have a better understanding of the real working world. A comprehensive report is developed once a student has finished PAES. This report can easily be used to develop Career Development Plans, School-To-Work Plans, IEPs and Transition Plans. PAES provides students with Real Knowledge that is relevant to their lives.
