CTE Student Interns with Superintendent Swenson

CTE/ROP Pathway students and Work-Based Learning

Five students from several pathways across the district had an opportunity to apply their learning as Student Interns as they assisted in the yearly CTE/ROP Computer Refresh process. With classified employees supervising, students accomplished the take down and set up of over 550 computers in 17 CTE/ROP labs across the district. They took great pride in their work and went above and beyond what was asked of them. These computer labs are now ready for teaching and learning when teachers and students come back in the fall. When Superintendent Ralf Swenson visited them in action and asked what they thought was the most important thing they had learned as Student Interns, they all agreed that it was teamwork. Work-Based Learning is a key component of the CTE/ROP Pathways, where students have the opportunity to apply what they have learned in the classroom in a real workplace setting.
