For the fall semester, 18 students at South Whidbey High School joined the Work-Based Learning Program. The students will work at 14 different sites in the community, according to a monthly report from Superintendent Jo Moccia.
This is an increase from the summer which had 15 high school students at 10 sites.
The program is a great opportunity for students to get real-world work experience and receive high school credit, she said.
