Work Experience credit may be earned by high school students. Opportunities are available for students to participate in job shadowing, apprenticeships and paid employment.
Work Experience is an elective course which combines paid employment with instruction. Students attend their own jobs during the week, and are assessed by their mentor teacher for understandings of specific course curriculum. Students will develop work habits, attitudes, self-confidence, job skills, and a personal portfolio, which can be used to locate, secure, and retain employment in the community.
Students must have an approved, legally paid job while earning credit. Course credit is earned by completion of the requirements: following the curriculum, submitting paycheck stubs, keeping weekly time sheets, demonstrating an increase in skills and understanding of course curriculum, completing a portfolio and submitting required forms. You may earn up to a maximum of 10 credits per semester (40 credits in 4 years) at the rate of one credit per 36 hours shown on weekly time sheets. The Work Experience curriculum must be completed for any credit to be given in a semester up to the completion of the 4-semester course.
