Job Placement

This program for Wood County youth ages 14-24 provides paid work experiences, skills training, internships and apprenticeships. See Mr. Wolf in Student Services for more information.

Early Placement/School-to-Work

Early Placement/School-to-Work is a program designed to give students a real world work experience with an employer related to the student's CT program. Students may obtain an application and work agreement from Mr. Wolf in the Student Services office.
 
Students may apply for Early Placement/School-to-Work if they meet the following criteria: approval of CT instructor, limited attendance and discipline issues, a 2.5 GPA and reliable transportation.
 
 Employers should understand that they are hiring a high school CT student with limited experience in the workplace. Any issues related to technical skills and employability should be addressed with the student and career technical instructor. At the employer's request and/or the instructor's suggestion, the student can be pulled off placement for a determined period of time for reinforcement of any deficient skill.
