West York Area School District hired its own students, through the PA Office of Vocational Rehabilitation, which helps individuals with disabilities find and maintain employment. Three days a week, two students are working morning assistance jobs in the Bulldog Café — the high school’s cafeteria — and two are working as dining attendants in the afternoon. In addition to learning how to be good workers in a classroom setting through Life Skills, students also are able to transfer job skill training to a real job. Student-applicants had to undergo the procedures for regular employment process, including food safety regulation training and an interview with the district’s food services director. “Our goal as a district is to make kids as independent as possible so they will be successful when they graduate,” said Traci Stauffer, director of special education and pupil services.
