WHAT IS CTE SPP?
CTESPP (Career Technical Education Summer Preceptorship Program) provides students experience in a work environment that matches their potential as well as their personal and professional aspirations. It introduces students to a profession in their field of interest in a work environment and enhances their ability to make an informed career choice and plan for college.
WHAT IS A PRECEPTORSHIP?
A preceptorship is a period of practical career experience and training for a student that is supervised by an expert or specialist in a particular field.
CHANGES FOR THE 2018 PRECEPTORSHIP PROGRAM:
The Preceptorship Program is expanding to Cordova and Folsom High, and will now be under the District (instead of just based at Vista del Lago). Because of a new funding source, students will be required to have taken or be enrolled in a CTE Pathway class at their high school. Other requirements include that students must be in their junior year. The program in the summer of 2018 will run from June 11-July 13 with the week of July 4 off. Student must commit to attend the entire 4 week program to be accepted, and have transportation to their work sites. Weekly classes, which are in addition to workplace hours, will be held on Mondays from 2-5 p.m.
Information Sessions are planned during FlexTime for January 18 & 25, and February 1. Information Flyer After attending an information session, "Statement of Interest" forms will become available to students. Once those have been screened, program applications (which include a teacher recommendation, resume, and personal statement) will be due February 12, followed by interviews in late February and a Family Orientation Session to be held in March 11 at the FCUSD Education Services Center. Placement paperwork and business contracts will be completed in March/April for final placements. Students will meet their workplace partners in April and May.
