Work-Based Learning


Talking points about Work-based Learning:

  • School is first, then work.

  • WBL students should not sign out or leave school until their class schedule time begins.

  • Interns: It is preferred for you to seek a job in your pathway, but it is not a requirement for a student to be placed in his/her pathway.

  • The employer must take out taxes so remember that when you receive your check. 

  • Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we are unable to place students in healthcare positions at this time.

  • Working for family is NOT allowed under WBL.

  • Students need to be good candidates to represent Adairsville High School.

  • Students may take WBL any block of the day, multiple blocks a day; however, students must be enrolled in at least one course in a Bartow County School (in our case, AHS, BCCCA, or distance learning). This year, students may be enrolled in distance learning and still take WBL. 

  • If students are assigned to ISS, the student must stay in ISS all day. In other words, he/she will not be allowed to check out of school for WBL.

  • WBL IS A COURSE. Students receive one Carnegie unit for every block of WBL they take.
