New for 2020-2021 - The Experiential Release Program!
The Experiential Release Program is an option available to juniors and seniors in good standing (academically, attendance, and behavior) for experiential or applied learning related to college and career readiness. Students may be released from school early, just prior to the LEGO period, for the following types of activities: dual enrollment course, internship/experiential learning, part-time work, volunteering, or community service. Activities must have a consistent schedule and last for a minimum of a Trimester.
Experiential Release students must complete the application and be approved. Examples could include, but not be limited to:
- Internship for STEM Honors,
- Experiential learning for Senior Independent Enrichment
- Activity to complete the College/Career Readiness Practicum,
- Dual enrollment in a college academic course or other career programs such as Southeastern Technical Institute,
- Volunteering with a company organization (for example technical/IT support for a student interested in computer science)
- Community Service to support a local organization (for example supporting YMCA programming for a student interested in education, youth development, or health/nutrition/physical fitness)
- Part-time work for a trade or service company, which supports interests in a similar career field
