Internships are available for students in 11th grade or 12th grade as elective course credit, which counts toward graduation, each semester at each high school.
The "student internship" allows for additional development of Career & Technical Education competencies within a general career field. Internships allow students to observe and participate in daily operations, develop direct contact with job personnel, ask questions about specific careers, and perform certain job tasks. This activity is exploratory and allows the student to get hands on experience in a number of related activities. The teacher, student, and the business community jointly plan the organization, implementation, and evaluation of an internship, regardless of whether it is an unpaid or paid internship.
