2017-2018 Work-Based Learning Application

Applications for the 2017-2018 school year must be completed and submitted online by Friday, December 9 to be considered for WBL for the 2017-2018 school year. Applications will be reviewed and all applicants will be ranked based on discipline, attendance, grade point average, and teacher recommendations. Please see my website for an explanation of the point values for the WBL eligibility score. You do not have to have a job now to apply or get accepted. If you apply by the deadline, you will either receive a letter of acceptance or letter of denial into the program prior to meeting with your counselor for registration.

Applications received after the due date will be ranked, placed on a waiting list, and considered if space is available in the program. Please read the student and WBL job requirements below. If you have any questions or need help with your application, please see me in room C104.
