School to Work

Teacher Cadet

This program encourages academically able (3.00+ GPA) students who possess exemplary interpersonal and leadership skills to consider teaching as a career.  Selected students will work with experienced teachers at the elementary and middle school levels, as well as in special education classrooms, at least two-hours per day.  Students will assist/observe in classrooms, complete teaching  portfolios, and learn about career opportunities in education.  Application process is required.  Cadets will be members of the Future Educators Association.

Community-Based CTE Program

Specialized occupational training in career and technical areas may be obtained at local business and industrial locations.  Instruction will be provided at the worksite by experienced and skilled mentors for at least 10 hours per week.  These training positions are for a full school year and are unpaid.  Detailed training plans based on national skill standards will be developed by Davison Community Schools to assure a progressive, sequential, and comprehensive program.  Students will be expected to maintain time sheets, journals, and develop training portfolios.  Students with career goals that cannot be currently met by CTE courses offered at DHS or the Genesee Area Skill Center are eligible for this program.  Possible program examples include:  child care, floral design, meat processing, electronics, and fire fighting.
