About Us

The B.L.A.S.T. program was designed to meet the needs of Exceptional Education Students (ESE) who are 18-22 years old. The B.L.A.S.T. program focuses directly on transition opportunities and postsecondary goals of students who have deferred their diploma. 

 

This student driven/teacher led program strives to promote the development of skills in the four main domains of transition: Independent Living, Vocational and Employment, Personal and Social, and Recreation and Leisure.

 

Members of the B.L.A.S.T. program participate in a variety of Brevard Public Schools' transition programs, Community Based Instruction, and Community Based Vocational Experiences. Members also participate fully in all aspects of developing and implementing a school based enterprise. Through hands-on learning centers and labs, members also gain knowledge and experience in a variety of independent living  and self-determination skills.
