GCHS Work-Based Learning Program

Geneva County High School Work-Based Learning

Welcome Parents and Employers!

On behalf of the Geneva County High School Work-Based Learning Program, thank you for your willingness to work with our students.



What Is Work-Based Learning (WBL)

Work-Based Learning provides students with educational opportunities that typically cannot be replicated in the classroom.  The Carl D. Perkins Career and Technical Education Act of 2006 (Perkins IV) emphasizes the necessity of providing students with strong experiences in, and comprehensive understanding of, all aspects of the industry that the student is preparing to enter.  This manual provides a framework for meeting this mandate through rigorous, relevant experiences in the classroom and in a work-based learning setting.


The Benefits of WBL

Work-based learning is a major component of career and technical education.  Improved skills lead to higher efficiency and the availability of a better-trained labor pool that encourages business growth and productivity. Well-managed work-based learning experiences build confidence in the school system and have benefits for the student, employer, mentor, school, and community.


How do Students Qualify?

At the beginning of each school year, required forms must be submitted for all students participating the Work-Based Education program at Geneva County High School. Each student will complete and submit all required forms in order to be eligible for placement in the WBL program. These forms are listed below:

  • GCHS Cooperative Education Student Application for Enrollment (Student & Parent Signature)
  • 3 Teacher Recommendation forms
  • Work-Based Education and Regulations
  • Training Agreement for Career/Technical Education Programs
  • Work-Based Education Interview Evaluation Form
  • To participate in the program, students are required to work a minimum of 140 hours per credit earned (approximately 7.5 hours per week).



Thank you in advance for your participation. You will discover that students in the Geneva County High School Work-Based Education Program desire to perform an excellent job for you. Please feel free to contact our school for more information!
