Site Based Work Experiences are scheduled to start in-person for the 2021-22 school year. College/Career Research & Development Teachers will use the approved MCPS forms and agreements to confirm student Work Based Learning (WBL) experiences with employers. Students will not be required to complete the WBL COVID waiver form to participate in a in-person WBL experience. Additionally, WBL may include Virtual and/or Hybrid work experiences where the employer facilitates a WBL experience that includes a virtual and in-person WBL schedule. Finally, students will have the option to start their WBL experience with a Capstone Project and transition to an in-person and/or virtual WBL experience when the opportunity becomes available with an employer.
College/Career Research and Development is a two-year program of study that prepares students with academic, technical, and workplace skills necessary to pursue future education and employment in a career field of their interest upon graduation from high school.
