What is CLIP?
College Life Is Possible, or CLIP, is a collaborative partnership between the Bossier Parish School System and Bossier Parish Community College. CLIP is designed for students with significant cognitive disabilities who have completed 4 years of high school. The program is located on BPCC’s campus presenting students with an opportunity to be educated in a college environment alongside their peers. The goal of CLIP is to prepare students for independent living and employment.
The educational environment in CLIP raises the standards of expectations to one similar to that of their peers. Students spend a portion of their day engaged in challenging academic curriculum that addresses self determination skills such as goal setting, decision making, and problem solving. The CLIP curriculum also addresses independent life skills such as money management and social skills. Finally, employability skills related to interviews, filling out job applications, and career awareness are addressed.
Another portion of a CLIP student’s day is spent in a community vocational internship. CLIP is currently partnered with several businesses in the Bossier area including Willis Knighton Hospital and Red River Sanitors at The Louisiana Boardwalk. CLIP offers students a wide variety of opportunities in numerous career areas for different job experiences.
