Work Experience Program

Students who maintain part time employment have the opportunity of receiving .5 credit per year.

This program allows students to earn 0.5 credit while maintaining a part-time job during the school year. Students must work an average of 8 paid hours per week, 160 hours for each half credit. In addition, students will provide pay stubs or direct deposit information as proof of hours worked with hourly pay, employer evaluations and required materials assigned by the teacher each quarter accessed via Google Classroom. You must sign up for this credit by the last week in November for WE A or the last week in April for WE B. You will not be enrolled after the deadline or retroactively. Students must be enrolled during the months they are working to accumulate the hours.

Community Service/Service Learning Program

Students have the opportunity to earn 0.5 credit for 50 hours of service.

Students choose and contact an agency on their own and decide upon the kind of volunteer work that they will perform as well as a schedule of the hours that they will work. Students may also work with a faculty or staff member in the schools, as a Lab Assistant, as a School Store Clerk, as a custodial assistant, or other Service Learning activities. They must also keep a log of hours and a journal. Information regarding this program is also available in the School Counseling Office. Students may earn 0.5 credit for 50 hours of service.
