Boulder Creek High School TSW
What is TSW?
TSW, or Transition From School to Work, is a collaboration with Vocational Rehabilitation, which is a state agency that provides supports for individuals who have a disability to obtain and maintain successful employment. Our program provides opportunities for students to learn about their individual skills, strengths, and needs related to learning and careers. We work with students to explore the various career options that align with their personal interests, preferences and strengths. Student will also have the opportunity to explore careers of interest through off campus learning activities such as job shadows, informational interviews and career fairs. We also work on key pre-employment skills such as filling out job applications, developing a resume, interviewing skills and budgeting. Students will have the opportunity to work closely with a Vocational Rehabilitation Counselor to develop a plan for after high school. This could include additional training, supports, etc. The students will receive their services through the TSW staff until graduation. During senior year, the TSW Teacher and VR Counselor will work closely with your child to develop a clear plan to meet the identified goal. We will also hold a senior exit meeting with you to ensure that you are aware of next steps to be completed.

Why ACCUPLACER Matters
ACCUPLACER tests make sure you get placed in classes that are right for you so you don’t waste time or money taking courses you don’t need.
FAFSA-Free Application for Federal Student Aid
FAFSA is an acronym that stands for the Free Application for Federal Student Aid. Colleges and universities use this form to determine your eligibility for federal, state, and college-sponsored financial aid, including grants, educational loans, and work-study programs. Therefore, even though the FAFSA is technically the application for federal aid, you have to fill it out to receive state and college-sponsored financial aid as well. If you're hoping for any government or school financial aid for college, you should file a FAFSA.
