Job Description for Special Populations Coordinator:

The primary function of special populations coordination is to ensure that members of special populations receive services and job training.

Special services are provided for special populations to ensure equal access to recruitment, enrollment and placement activities. These supplementary services are essential to the successful participation of some disabled and disadvantaged students in career and technical education programs. Students with the greatest needs have top priorities for services. Coordination with other service providers reduces the number of direct service contacts and the duplication of efforts. Being non-instructional personnel, Special Populations Coordinators have the major responsibilities for ensuring such coordination.
