In order to qualify for the Work Experience course, students must be enrolled in grades 11 or 12, and be employed on a regular basis and stay employed through the semester. Students must have at least a 1.5 GPA and be 16 years of age due to CA Labor Law requirements. Students must complete and return a work permit application, training agreement form, and information sheet as part of the enrollment process.


This course gives students the opportunity to acquire general and specific occupational skills through a combination of supervised paid employment or volunteer work performed at a non-profit agency and related classroom instruction.  Students attend one “A” period class per week.  There are strict attendance requirements due to meeting only once a week. For students enrolled in this course, the job acts as a lab for the course.  Students must maintain active employment through the semester. Students enrolled in one period (5 credits) of Work Experience must work at least 10 hours per week. Students enrolled in two periods (10 credits) of Work Experience must work at least 15 hours per week.
