BOAT - Brea Olinda Adult Transition

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

The BOAT (Brea Olinda Adult Transition) Program at BOHS is designed to meet the educational needs of students, aged 18-21, who have cognitive disabilities such as autism, Down syndrome, and Intellectual Disability, to name a few. This branch of Life Skills was started 7 years ago, and has grown from 4 students in 2013 to a high of 18 in 2017. The program consists of students who have graduated from high school with their Certificate of Achievement, and they may stay in the program until the school year in which they turn 22 years old. Our main focus of our Adult Transition Program is on functional academics, independent living skills, and workability. A key feature of our program is Community Based Instruction (CBI) component, in which our students go out into the city of Brea and beyond to practice the concepts they have learned.

Week 5-7 Movement.m4v

Harry Potter books

We have read /listened to/watched the Harry Potter series in class, completing related comprehension lessons along the way via Kahoot. We finished the first 6 books this school year, wrapping up The Half Blood Prince on June 2!!

We will resume in August with the 7th and final book, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.


This process includes listening to each book on tape (Jim Dale does an amazing job!) while following along with the digital textbook. Next, we watch the corresponding movie video clips on YouTube. And finally, we test our knowledge with a Kahoot quiz. Everyone is really enjoying the story!!!

DAILY MOVEment BREAKS

Every day during BOAT Online class sessions, we take a daily movement break to keep our minds sharp and our bodies in shape. Everyone has been encouraged to take pictures and share. This slideshow covers the first 4 weeks of school, plus some family vacation pics.

Our beloved staff member, Ms. Jeannie Parel, passed away on March 6th, 2013. Jeannie had worked at BOHS as an instructional assistant for more than 13 years, her final 2 in our Life Skills program. Before that, she had worked with us regularly, and we lovingly referred to her as our "5th Beatle". Jeannie meant so much to our students and staff- she helped everyone with whatever they needed, she always had a smile and a kind word, and she made the most amazing cupcakes! She is sorely missed, but never forgotten. She will always be remembered and will forever be in our hearts. Thank You, Ms. Jeannie!
