The Spe­cial Ed­u­ca­tion Depart­ment of Calvert County Pub­lic Schools wishes to en­thu­si­as­ti­cally thank the fol­low­ing busi­nesses for their will­ing­ness in pro­vid­ing work­places and job ex­pe­ri­ences to our stu­dents over the 2016-2017 school year and sum­mer. The Sum­mer Youth Em­ploy­ment (SYE) pro­gram is made pos­si­ble by an an­nual grant from Mary­land’s Di­vi­sion of Re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion Ser­vices (DORS). The SYE pro­gram has been grow­ing steadily the past sev­eral years and this past sum­mer pro­vided job-train­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties for sev­eral of our stu­dents — some of whom were then hired.

We hope the ci­ti­zens of the tri-county re­gion will sup­port th­ese or­ga­ni­za­tions: Ar­mory Road Self Stor­age, Safe­way of Prince Fred­er­ick, Pee­bles, Hol­i­day Inn Ex­press in Prince Fred­er­ick, Hol­i­day Inn Select Con­fer­ence Cen­ter and Ma­rina in Solomons, 231 Farm Cen­ter, The Lobby Cof­fee Bar and Cafe and Calvert County Parks and Re­cre- ation. We also want to thank the fol­low­ing schools for their will­ing­ness to in­volve our stu­dents in their var­i­ous build­ings and grounds projects: Beach Ele­men­tary, Barstow Ele­men­tary, Mu­tual Ele­men­tary, Plum Point Ele­men­tary, Plum Point Mid­dle and Patux­ent High.

In ad­di­tion, we wish to thank The Arc South­ern Mary­land (www.ar­somd.org) for pro­vid­ing job coaches and var­i­ous sup­port to stu­dents in this SYE pro­gram and dur­ing the school year as well.

We so ap­pre­ci­ate our part­ner­ships and hope other busi­nesses and agen­cies will join in on this im­por­tant en­deavor. If you have any ques­tions or would like to dis­cuss a part­ner­ship with Calvert County Pub­lic Schools, please con­tact: Paul Reilly, tran­si­tion spe­cial­ist, CCPS — Spe­cial Ed­u­ca­tion Depart­ment, at reil­lyp@calvert­net.k12.md.us or 443550-83841.
