Just as the fourth class of Florence 1’s Project Search program is set to graduate; a second partner site is being added. Raldex Hospitality will join McLeod Regional Medical Center as a host site for this award-winning Transition-to-Work program for Exceptional Education students. School districts across the country participate with local partners to offer Project Search. Florence 1 is the first district in South Carolina to have two partner sites.
Florence 1’s Project Search program began in 2019, as an expansion of the employability program already in place in the district. Non-diploma track students learn job skills in areas such as housekeeping, food service and surgery prep that will help them gain employment after high school. With the addition of Raldex Hospitality, more students will be able to take advantage of the program.
