Students receive their diploma based on the number of credits determined by the IEP team. The BRIDGES I program is typically for students in the early part of their high school years. The focus is on obtaining core course requirements while assessing vocational interests, improving attendance, and learning appropriate social skills. The BRIDGES II program is typically for students in the later part of their high school years. The emphasis is on completing graduation requirements while applying social skills to integrate students into vocational courses and/or the work environment. Placement is flexible between the two programs, allowing for students to be placed in the program that will have the highest yield for success.
