|School to Career|
This course helps students learn the decision making process for education and career choices during high school and beyond. Class activities focus on the development of work-ready skills, which are essential for success in today’s workplace. Students explore the answers to self-defining questions: “Who am I”, “Where do I want to go?”, “How do I get there?” This one credit course is a prerequisite for participation in the Cooperative Education Program.
Through this program high school students earn credit for paid, supervised work in the community. A State of Maine Cooperative Education Agreement among the parent(s), student, school and employer is completed at the beginning of the year. Employers/ supervisors evaluate work ethic, on the job skills, and workplace responsibilities. Number of hours worked varies, but students generally work an average of 10 – 15 hours per week. Students must provide their own transportation to and from the job site. Prerequisite: Career Explorations
