* There is no blanket answer for these questions,
   that is why it is very important for your child to
 see his/her counselor before signing up for one or

* Our recommendation is that students wait until
     the 2nd semester of their Junior year to take
                  either of these tests.
* In order for your child to be as successful as they
 can be, they need to have successfully completed
                     up to Algebra 2.

In order to not be counted absent when they are job shadowing, your child
    needs to return a permission slip, prior to shadowing. They also need to
    return the post shadowing paperwork (including the 1 page essay, Thank
    You note and addressed/stamped envelope).
We ask that students try to not shadow a parent.
Also students are not allowed to job shadow at a middle or high school.
    Elementary schools are permitted, but please be sure that it is ok with the
    principal.
