Worksite Learning & Job Opportunities

  • Receive high school credit for working!

    Work Site Learning (WSL) is a wonderful learning experience for juniors and seniors that connects knowledge and skills obtained in the classroom to those needed in the work environment. If you have a job and meet the requirements of the Worksite Learning program, you can receive one-half credit for every 180 hours you work. In order to enroll in the program, you, your parent and your employer will need to complete the required forms. Students may pick up packets from Ms. Derrig or print them from this website. Once the packet is completed and returned, the student will document his/her work hours. Students will have folders in Ms. Derrig's room, where they are to document their hours with each paycheck. It is important that students remain current in updating their hours in order to receive the maximum amount of credit. Student performance will be evaluated every 180 hours.
