Career Skills Investigation
About the Program
Career Skills Investigation (a marketing program) is targeted to students with learning or physical disabilities. It is the objective of this program to promote educational and community opportunities. It provides the resources to learn and become productive members of our society.
CSI gives students the opportunity to learn marketing skills, while integrating high-tech equipment. Computers, printers, and software are used in the planning and operating of a store (Lobo-Mart), ordering inventory, and maintaining records. Digital cameras, movie camera, computers, projection system, and a poster maker are used for promotion. Students learn how to use an electronic cash register and calculators for servicing customer purchases. In lab, they also learn how to make jewelry and floral arrangements, which in turn are sold in the school store.
Students engage in hands-on experiences while working in the school store. They also experience real-world activities while selling their jewelry and flower arrangements at various local events.
As a student in the program, you will also have the chance to join and participate in Distributive Education Clubs of America (DECA). This involvement will give you an opportunity to improve your leadership and interpersonal skills and to compete in local, regional, state and national skills contests.
