Work-Based Learning

Northern Highlands Regional High School
Career & Academic Pathways - Work-Based Learning


In order to obtain approval to participate in a paid work experience during the school day, this attached form must be completed by the student, and signed by the parent/guardian, student's Guidance Counselor, Career & Academic Pathways Supervisor, and Mr. Occhino. Only seniors are eligible to 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 his/her 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 Ms. Hayes, Career & Academic Pathways Supervisor. 

Please be advised that due to the fact that our Work-Based Learning Program is non-credit bearing, you will not be eligible to participate in a spring sport, as you will not have earned the required number of credits.
