What is Work Experience?
The KSS Work Experience 12 Program is designed to provide students with new learning experiences that go beyond what is learned in school. Students will become "self-educators" in the work environment, where they are able to apply in-school learning to the work world. These experiences are extremely valuable in preparing students for their transition from the school setting to the work world. This program in conjunction with other Career Programs including Job Shadows, will provide KSS students with authentic "hands-on" opportunities to investigate possible careers for their future.
