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 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.
