Northern Highlands Regional High School
Career & Academic Pathways - Work-Based Learning
Students in grade 12 may participate in this program. Applications are due 2/1 for fall and spring semesters.
Only seniors are eligible to participate in a paid work experience during the school day and receive an abbreviated schedule. Students must work a minimum of 15 hours/week, spread over a four-day period excluding weekends. The student must attach a letter from the employer indicating promise of employment, days per week, hours per week, employer’s contact information including phone number and email. Northern Highlands reserves the right to contact the employer at any time, and may also request a student’s pay stub to verify hours of employment. Students should submit a monthly timesheet to the Career & Academic Pathways Supervisor. Students are not eligible to take a study hall while participating in this program.
Please be advised that due to the fact that our Work-Based Learning Program is non-credit bearing, students will not be eligible to participate in a spring sport, as students will not have earned the required number of credits.
Prerequisite: Prior administrative approval by the Career & Academic Pathways Supervisor, Director of School Counseling, and Principal must be obtained before enrolling in the Work-Based Learning program.
