  • Important Information on Our Work Based Learning Advisory Program

    Dear Students and Parents:                                                                         

     For the first two weeks in January 2018, all students will participate in Work-Based Learning Advisory. Work Based Learning (WBL) provides students a range of experiences that are designed to create meaningful linkages between work and school and provide students with meaningful exposure to successful professionals in the Engineering and Architectural fields. WBL Advisory is aligned to the Career Development Occupational Studies (CDOS) Learning Standards.  All students, including students with disabilities, who participate in standard State assessments and complete career preparation experiences aligned to the CDOS commencement-level learning standards can earn the CDOS in any of the following ways:

    • As an endorsement to any diploma (local, Regents, or advanced Regents)
    • As a +1 option in lieu of a fifth Regents exam when working towards a HS diploma
