CE, INTERNSHIPS, & WORK-STUDY
If your student works at a paying job during high school, credit can be awarded for "work study." The student must be 14 or older, and there must be a supervisor present.
The Work Study coordinator and the counseling staff will be there to help you as you participate in the Work Study Program, including job placement assistance if you need it
No more than 21 credits in Work Study combined can be earned over the course of the student's high school years.
For every 50 hours of work-study a student will earn 3 credits.
Request a copy of the work study paper form the CE & Internship Coordinator. Or download it here. Complete a one-page TYPED paper outlining your experiences at your job.
HOW MANY CREDITS CAN YOU EARN
The CE & Internship Coordinator will contact your place of employment to:
Verify that the work is not hazardous to your health or safety
Verify that you’re being paid at least minimum wage
Obtain a job description and a list of the skills that you'll be using or learning
Secure an agreement that the supervisor will fill out a quarterly evaluation of your skills, attendance, and performance.
