Work-Based Learning

Program Overview

The LISD TECH Center gives students the opportunity to learn “on-the-job” through a capstone experience. Working with a student’s high school counselor and local businesses, students step out of the classroom and into the working world, learning skills and gaining knowledge through a structured work experience.

Students indicate their interest in a work-based learning experience through their LISD TECH Center instructor, high school counselor, and LISD TECH Center application.

State guidelines require Career Technical Education (CTE) students to finish at least half of their program before going on work-based learning.

How to Apply

LISD TECH Center Work-Based Learning coordinators assist students who have taken LISD TECH Center classes as well as those who are looking to get high school credit for their work experiences.

The application process begins as any other LISD TECH Center program — by applying online.

Current LISD TECH Center students should follow up their application by talking with their instructor and making an appointment with the Work-Based Learning coordinators. Students from local school districts should follow-up with a phone call to (517) 265-1671.
