Juniper is one of five Scriber Lake High School students involved in a pilot of the Edmonds School District’s new on-the-job-training program that lets students earn class credit for part-time, paid internships. The program pairs with school assignments about resumes, financial planning and career aptitude.
The pay sets the course apart from most other career-focused classes at school. And it encourages students who might otherwise skip school for financial reasons to stay in class and pick up valuable skills for their future.
Thursday, January 19th, was the opening information night for the T-Mobile Explorer Prep Career Launch Program. This is a unique partnership with Edmonds School District CTE, Edmonds College, T-Mobile and WABS to help prepare students with a paid experience, certificate and a future career.
Worksite learning helps connect classroom learning to careers. These can include jobs, internships, and worksite tours to bring learned skills relevance and strengthen 21st century skills (or soft skills), such as communication, collaboration, critical thinking, problem solving and more for students.
This is an exciting opportunity to use STEM and the Arts to partner with the City of Lynnwood to explore and propose solutions to authentic issues in the community. Edmonds school district students in Grades 4 -12 are invited to contribute to tackling these challenges.
All are invited to one of two events:
Wednesday, Feb. 1: 6-7pm at Lynnwood High
Thursday, Feb. 9: 6-7 p.m. at Mountlake Terrace High
Learn about key calendar dates for the 2023-24, 2024-25 and 2025-26 school years, plus school change requests, COVID-19 and Flu tests, City of Lynnwood Mayor's Challenge and other news.
