Counselors/Program Advisors and other Student Services staff members assist prospective and current students with general information, career-related, school-related and personal issues. The general objective is to provide students with services necessary to make informed career choices and successfully complete their occupational education.
Exceptional Student Education
Our full-time Exceptional Student Education (ESE) Specialist provides assistance to adult special needs students. All programs, campus organizations and activities and facilities are accessible to McFatter students with disabilities, allowing them to function as independently and effectively as possible while attending classes.
Students With Disabilities
The School Board of Broward County, Florida, prohibits any policy or procedure which results in discrimination on the basis of age, color, disability, gender, national origin, marital status, race, religion, or sexual orientation. Individuals who wish to file a discrimination complaint, may call the Director of Equal Educational Opportunities (EEO) at 754-321-2150 or Teletype Machine (TTY) at 754-321-2158.
Individuals with disabilities requesting accommodations under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) should contact Ginger Scheppa, Coordinator of Disability Services at McFatter Technical Center at 754-321-5822. Please note that all requests for sign language interpreters must be made at least ten working days prior to attending an orientation or receiving program services by contacting Disability Services.
Follow-up is integrally related to occupational placement. At McFatter Technical Center, assistance is provided to current and former students in obtaining employment, enrolling in further education or a combination of these two. This requires careful assessment of the student's abilities, aptitudes and interests. Instructors work cooperatively with our Job Placement Specialist to ensure successful placement for McFatter's students.
Students who exit with marketable skills are subject to the follow-up process. The Florida Education and Training Placement Information Program (FETPIP) receives data from state and federal agencies which assists in identifying locations and areas of employment or continuing educational status of McFatter's completers and leavers. Broward school district personnel collect supplemental follow-up data.
The Student Services Director is responsible for coordinating McFatter's placement and follow-up process. Students are encouraged to seek employment assistance from their instructors, our Job Placement Specialist and from vacancies posted in the Job/Placement Center.
