High School

At LHS, students run a coffee, tea, hot chocolate, smoothie, and protein shake cart each Friday. They also have a variety of snacks and bottled water available on the cart, as well. Staff members fill out a Google Sheet with their orders indicating their name, beverage type, and room number. The students are involved with shopping for products, preparation, making the beverages, and delivering on a cart to each room using our LHS map. Students are also responsible for collecting donations, giving change, and cleaning up. They are currently working with a local McDonald's which donates cups and lids for the program.

About the Digitability Work Simulation Program

Digitability believes that skills are best learned through real-world experience and application. That’s why Digitability created the Work Simulation Program: a complete curriculum that teaches work-ready skills in a hands-on way you won’t find anywhere else.

After choosing their classroom’s Work Simulation project, students are “hired” for jobs and begin practicing workplace behavior, managing tasks, using tech skills for independence, self-advocating, self-regulating and more. 

Digitability Work Simulations include Bankability, a virtual banking and workplace behavior program where students earn virtual dollars when they exhibit behaviors that will make them successful in the workplace and increase their independence. Using those dollars earned, students experience a modern banking app while learning the fundamentals of budgeting concepts such as earning, spending, and saving.
