Harvey County Special Education Cooperative is going into its Sixth Year with the Project SEARCH program. This High School to work Transition Program is one of the few being implemented here in Kansas. Project SEARCH is an innovative workforce and career development model that benefits the individual, workforce, and community.
Since its inception in 1995, the Project SEARCH model has been implemented in 39 states and four countries with impressive success. Participating communities report 70 to 100% placement of employees in long-term, fulfilling positions upon completion of the program. This success is achieved through close collaboration between education, businesses, and service agencies, to provide vocational and life-skills training and educational support leading to long-term employment.
