Employment First means that employment in the general workforce should be the first and preferred option for individuals with disabilities receiving assistance from publicly funded systems. Simply put, Employment First means real jobs and real wages.

The overall goal is for students to be employed like everyone else in society, int typical work setting, working side by side with people without disabilities, earning regular wages and benefits and being part of the economic mainstream of our society.

We wish Mrs. Kibarian’s Class success in winning this contest, and as is evident their poster entry looks amazing!
