High School Diversified Occupations:
Students participating in the Diversified Occupations program attend required academic classes and the work-theory class. They are then scheduled for an early release to report to their employer for the work experience. Therefore, Diversified Occupations is a two-credit course; one credit is for the related theory class and the other is for the cooperative work experience. In order to receive the two credits, students must enroll in and pass both the theory class and the cooperative work experience.

The Diversified Occupations program combines “school-based” classroom study in work orientation (job readiness, employability skills, career objective development, and consumer skills) with “work-based” on-the-job career preparation at a training site in government, business, or industry. This program involves a planned partnership with specified connecting activities and responsibilities among the student-learner, parents, school, and employer, and is for 12th grade students only.
