Addressing Scheduling Needs in Work-Based Learning

Addressing scheduling needs for work-based learning in high school is crucial to balancing students’ academic requirements with professional learning experiences. Flexible scheduling options and clear communication between educational institutions and employers can help students participate in valuable work-based learning opportunities without compromising their academic progress. At the I-WIN convening on November 8, 2023, communities shared how they are working with master scheduling teams to make this happen!
