Prerequisite: Approval of Coordinator
Grade Level: 12
Students are given an opportunity to gain first-hand knowledge of careers through an on-the-job training experience provided in cooperation with local businesses. Students will attend the Career Internship class daily and can leave school early to work a minimum of 15 hours per week (mandatory) at a part-time, school-approved training station. Students will learn how to work collaboratively, handle employer-employee relations, acquire marketable and transferable job skills, realize career goals, create a career portfolio, and earn and manage money. Students earn one credit for class work and one credit for work experience. All students must also participate in the departmental co-curricular program (i.e. DECA, BPA, or Skills USA at the teacher’s discretion).
