Students may participate in a variety of Work Experience (General, Exploratory and Vocational) and receive supplementary support and instruction in the Work Experience classes taught online to earn high school elective credits in addition to the pay they get from their employers.
Working students who are age 18 and older can earn 5 high school elective credits per semester based upon the job they already have.
Students who are age 17 and younger will need to complete a work permit application once they have been notified by the employer that they have been hired, and will be supervised by the Work Experience Teacher.
There are three ways to participate in work experience:
1 〉 General Work Experience
Provides supervised part- or full- time employment to assist students in developing desirable work habits and attitudes in real jobs.
2 〉 Exploratory Work Experience
Provides unpaid opportunities to observe a variety of work conditions to ascertain their interests and aptitudes for specific career, through a growing list of community partnerships throughout Riverside County.
3 〉 CTE / Vocational Work Experience / Internships
Provides an extension of vocational learning at school through part-time employment. These opportunities (many of them are paid) are available through our community partners such as the California Family Life Centers, ResCare, and the Constitutional Rights Foundation.
