School to Career
School to Career is a program that encompasses a
structured and supervised hands-on learning environment
which provides students with valuable experience in their
chosen fields. Students work on projects that will benefit
an organization and, in return, the student learns new skills
and expands their knowledge of a career field. The program
allows students to apply academic learning and employers
to provide hands-on training in a professional setting
that illustrates classroom relevance in the professional world.
See the video "Inside the School District" which includes

Doug White and Rochester Police Chief, Paul McGee.
