Community Based Instruction

Hello! Our first Community Based Instruction (CBI) is scheduled for Wednesday, October 13, 2021. If your son or daughter is scheduled to attend, they will be brining an orange notice home with them on Tuesday. It will indicate where they are going and what they need to bring with them.

Students scheduled for Target: Will be shopping from a list for items that will contribute to the household. Please return the list and money needed to purchase the items to school on Wednesday morning. Students may also bring extra money if they wish to purchase something from the cafe if time allows. This is not a guarantee – but it’s something we have done in the past and students really enjoy this time.

Students scheduled for Leo’s: A sample menu will be attached to your orange notice. Please indicate what foods your son/daughter would like to order by highlighting or circling the menu items, and send the menu, along with spending money, to school on Wednesday morning. As I mentioned in the note, the menu I’m sending home and the menu in the restaurant vary in price slightly. Please add an extra few dollars when adding up their total.

All students will be scheduled for one Target trip and one Leo’s trip this year. So if your son/daughter is eager to get out into the community, everyone will have their opportunity!

*Students who are not demonstrating proper behavior, good grooming/hygiene/appropriate clothing on the day of their scheduled trip may have to stay back in the classroom

**Due to the large number of students we have, we cannot reschedule CBI due to absences. If you know ahead of time your student will be absent, please let us know we will do our best to accommodate your schedule. We will be updating the students planners tomorrow for the CBI sites. The CBI dates are: 10/13, 12/8, 2/9, 3/9, 4/13, and 5/11 (no one will be scheduled for 5/11 at this time – we will schedule that towards the end of the year).

*** We will not be keeping bank accounts this year. Any change from purchases will be sent home with the student. Students should carry a wallet and/or purse with them when going out on CBI trips.
