Work-Based Learning

The WBL courses gives Mississippi high school students the opportunity to earn academic credit for their authentic work experiences. 

Students are required to have a job to be eligible for this class. Each week or 2 weeks, they will turn in their work hours. Students are required to do a digital portfolio. Each component of the portfolio will be an assignment. Students earn credit based on the number of hours they work. Students earning 1 credit, may count that credit as the College and Career Readiness Class,

70-139 hours  - 1/2 credit

140-209 - 1 credit

210-279 - 1-1/2 credit

280 and above - 2 credits

Mrs. Kim McGaughy is the WBL instructor.
