Inside the Classroom

In September 2021, District 86 launched the "Inside the Classroom" video series to showcase the work/learning our schools are engaged in on a daily basis, and highlight some of the ways in which we support the growth, development and success of our students.

Below are the videos that have been produced during the 2023-24 school year.

You can access all of the videos in the series by visiting the Inside the Classroom playlist on our YouTube channel.

Transition Center job site training at Perma-Seal

In this video, we follow a Transition Center student and Paraprofessional/job coach Mary Sullivan, to a job site. We learn how the partnership between the Transition Center and Perma-Seal teaches students about responsibility, while working on their independence, and soft and hard skills.

We want to thank the Transition Center student, Mary Sullivan and Nadia Campos, the culture and talent leader at Perma-Seal, for allowing us to see how community partnerships aid in students' successful transition from school to the workplace.
