Work Study Program

WORK STUDY: 75 hours = .5 credit, 2* credits max per year

Students can earn high school credit for employment. A student may receive up to 1 credit as a sophomore, and 2 credits as a junior/senior. Every 75 contact hours at work is equivalent to .5 credit. Students may work after school and weekends. The Counseling Office has the official enrollment paperwork that must be filled out and returned before the work hours can be counted toward credit (forms also found below). Students can begin Work Study at any time during the school year. Credit can only be earned during the academic year (not summer). This is a pass/fail course that counts toward graduation credits but does not affect the grade point average. Sophomores cannot get early release. Juniors and seniors may be considered for early release if certain requirements are met (enrolled in American Studies or Life After High School, counselor/admin approval, must not be failing any classes-early release is only for ACCESS.)
