Students who participate in OJT/internships will work in a business practicing skills learned in their KCC class. It is a chance to “try on a career” before they leave high school and pay for training in technical school, college or apprenticeships. It can be taken for one or two semesters depending upon the class. Students in grades 11 or 12 must have completed one or more semesters of a KCC class and must meet the following criteria: good attendance, a grade of “A” or “B,” and a teacher recommendation for “professionalism.”
Students with an Individual Education Plan (IEP) may access services from the Special Education Vocational Trainer if they meet the above criteria.
Upon teacher recommendation, students may fill out appropriate paperwork with the OJT Coordinator and begin the application process. Students go to work each day instead of coming to KCC and will earn KCC credit.
Students will receive valuable training that they normally would pay for in a technical school or college.
