  • CTE Internship

    ISD 728 is offering CTE Internships to Juniors and Seniors as an opportunity to learn a variety of employability and technical skills through paid internships.

    • A student needs to have school counselor, CTE teacher or WBL Coordinator approval.
    • Students will attend class one day a week and work 10+ hours a week.
    • Students will provide their own transportation and have parent permission.
    • Priority will be given to those that have successfully taken classes in the CTE career pathways.

    Students interested in a CTE internship should talk to their CTE teacher and complete the Interest Survey. Work Based Learning Coordinators will follow up with the student about current opportunities or work with local businesses to develop new sites as needed.
