Objectives:

The Murray High School Work-Based Learning Experience (WBL) program was developed to connect school-based learning with work-based learning.  Schools and participating business partners integrate classroom learning with productive, structured work experiences that are directly related to the goals and objectives of the individual’s Student Education Occupation Plan (SEOP).  What students learn in the classrooms can be directly applied to “real world” situations through the WBL program. 

 

Participation Requirements:

·         A student must:

o    Be a junior or senior at Murray High School.

o    Have previously successfully completed a Career Internship class.

o    Have completed (or be currently enrolled in) a career related course.

§  The career related course is:  __________________________________________.

 

Worksites:

·         The worksites must be related to the student’s career goals as per their SEOP.

·         Worksites must be pre-approved by the CTE Coordinator for appropriate student placement and safety.

 

Enrollment:

·         Students may not be simultaneously enrolled in regular MHS courses and a WBL experience.  Work schedules must not conflict with school schedules.

·         WBL experiences are limited to one experience per semester and may be for one to three periods in length.

 

Forms:

·         It is the student’s responsibility to submit all permission forms, agreements forms, and disclosure forms completed with the appropriate signatures to the Career Center, room 115, PRIOR to the first day of the semester.

·         All forms must be submitted before the WBL experience is entered on the student schedule and the WBL experience begins.

·         Students must receive permission from the CTE Coordinator to change employment for a WBL experience and new permission forms and agreement forms must be completed and submitted after the new worksite has been approved by the CTE Coordinator.  Changing employment may result in failing grades due to loss of worksite hours and/or poor student evaluations.   A loss of the total amount of credit earned may be experienced  by the student based on the time sheets, assignments, and student evaluations submitted.


Attendance:

·         Student attendance is reported on MHS Time Sheets. 

·         MHS Time Sheets are available in the Career Center and are submitted to the Career Center every two weeks (this process is similar to the semi-monthly pay period used by some employers). 

·         A completed Time Sheet includes:

o    the student name, student number, the current term, and class periods.

o    records the dates and number of hours spent at the work site.

o    the signature of the Worksite Supervisor. 

·         Failure to attend at, or tardiness to, the work site may result in a “U” in citizenship as well as termination from the worksite.

·         If students miss time at work for any reason, they are responsible to make up that lost work time with the worksite supervisor.

 

Citizenship:

·         The Murray High School citizenship policy will be enforced while participating in the WBL program.  Misconduct or attendance problems resulting in an unfavorable Student Evaluation, or a termination from the work site, may result in a “U” in citizenship and removal from the WBL program.

·         Arrangements for remediation of all “U’s” must be made with the MHS Security Office. 

 

Grading and Credit:

·         The WBL program utilizes a Pass/Fail grading system for elective credit only.  The number of points possible on evaluations, assignments, and time sheets are the MINIMUM number of points required for a Pass grade.  Percentage grades are shown as a percent of the minimum number of point necessary to earn a Pass grade. Therefore, students must earn at least 100% of the MINIMUM number of points to earn a Pass grade.

·         No remediation is available for credit.

·         A student must receive favorable evaluations, complete all assignments, and work a minimum of 36 hours per period per term in order to receive a passing term grade with credit.  As an example: A student who is scheduled for a two period WBL experience must receive favorable on all evaluations, turn in all assignments, and log in a minimum of 72 hours (2 periods times 36 hours) at the work site to receive a passing grade and 0.50 of elective credit. 

·         If there is a perceived error in a term grade, any changes must be completed within the following term or by June 30th for the fourth term.

·         Students earn 0.50 elective credits per period per semester for WBL experience with a semester maximum of 1.50.

·         A student may only earn a total of 4.0 elective credits for WBL experiences while in high school.

 

Transportation:

·         Transportation to and from the WBL experience is the sole responsibility of the parent/guardian and the student. 

·         No credit will be issued for time spent traveling to or from the WBL experience.

·         A student Off-Campus Permit will be generated for a WBL experience.
