WORKSITE LEARNING and Science Research Internship

Attention sophomores and juniors:  Do you want to earn money while earning school credit?  Are you interested in working in an environment that matches your career path? Lean more about Worksite Learning! 

WHAT:  Worksite Learning is a CTE (Career and Technical Education) program designed to place students in a working environment that matches their career path.  WSL is a partnership between the school-employer-and student.  It is a competency-based program that integrates classroom instruction with structured worksite experiences.  WSL provides exposure, experience and paid training in a specific career – a capstone experience to the students program of study.  The experiences are monitored and supervised by both representatives of an educational institution and a community workplace.  Students must provide their own transportation.

Students receive a semester credit (.5 credit) while working part-time in a local area company (180 hours per semester work experience for a maximum of 1 credit per year) and meeting program requirements. Students in the program are released 1-2 periods from the school day to go to work. Attendance at WSL Seminar during their senior year is required.

WHO:  Any current sophomore/junior, who has identified their career path, has a 2.5 GPA and has completed or enrolled in a class that is related to their career path and job placement, “connecting class”. 

CONTACT your school counselor or call/email Mrs. Richardson at 967-6524, Karen.richardson@rsd.edu. ;

*****WSL Business students are eligible for direct credit through Columbia Basin College.
