TRAILS provides specifically designed instruction to equip individuals with exceptionalities to live, communicate, and work within their community. This transition program is designed to prepare students to transition from school to adult life and is one of several options provided to students in the Gardner Edgerton School District. TRAILS is a collaborative effort between young adults, parents, the Gardner Edgerton School District USD 231, and the adult service providers.
The TRAILS Enterprises program is a classroom based opportunity young adults have in which they produce products to sale. In addition to learning how to make the products young adults work on communication skills, record keeping, following directions, and more.
