If you are 16 years old or older and working, you may be eligible to earn CTE credit for your paid job experience.

Students must be enrolled in a qualifying CTE course or have taken a related CTE course to earn credit for work experience.  For example, if you are working at a retail store and have taken a marketing class, you can earn .5 credit for every 180 hours worked (up to 2 credits a year)!

Labor & Industries has restrictions  on work hours and job duties for students under 18 years old.  A Parent School Authorization and VPS Off-Campus Work Based Learning forms are required. Contact your school’s Career Specialist for more information!

For more information about off-campus opportunities or employment, enlistment and enrollment, check out https://futureme.vansd.org/ or log in to Xello if you’re a VPS student.
