Work Based Learning
What is Work Based Learning (WBL)?
The WBL Program allows students to make valuable career decisions through work based learning in their field of study or interest. The program allows you to participate in order to gain experience that can be valuable for college admission or career advancement.
Students must display good attendance, citizenship and be in good academic standing in addition to providing career technical teacher recommendation to participate. In addition, all required curriculum, graduation and certification requirements must be met. Students must also provide a copy of their completed OSHA 10 Certification card that is taken junior year, to begin the program.
When can I start?
Most students start the 2nd semester of their senior year. If you have non mandatory electives and meet all graduation requirements, you may be able to start sooner. The WBL elective can replace the student's CTE Program Class. Students may also be able to participate during non mandatory elective periods. A student can also participate in WBL and remain in the CTE Program. Each application and case is handled individually but we try to allow for flexibility in supporting the best interest of the student.
You will earn 5 credits and a grade for your work based learning (WBL).
