Special Education Students Honored in Vocational Housekeeping Program Celebration at El Capitan Hotel

Students enrolled in the Merced County Office of Education and El Capitan Hotel Vocational Education Housekeeping Program were honored today in a recognition ceremony organized by the hotel. The event celebrated nearly 20 young adults from the MCOE Special Education Transition Center who participated in the program. 

The housekeeping program, which celebrates its second year, helps students enrolled in the MCOE Special Education Transition Program develop valuable life and employment skills through hands-on housekeeping and hospitality training. The hotel is one of several locations across Merced County where students with special needs can gain vocational skills. 

The program is part of El Capitan’s community promise, focused on positively impacting the Merced community, particularly in education, employment and economic development. The program helps highlight the significance role vocational programs play in establishing inclusive work environments. 

MCOE transition teachers, parents and staff from three Tiered Academic and Behavioral Support (TABS) classes were present at the event, as well as representatives from El Capitan Hotel. The ceremony concluded with a presentation of certificates for each student to commemorate their vocational training.
