Work Experience at Eagle
ACE Work Study Expectations
All students enrolled at Eagle Academy have the opportunity to earn elective credit from their employment outside of school by being enrolled in ACE Work Study. Students enrolled in ACE will need to fulfill the Work for Credit Requirements listed below. Students enrolled in ACE who do not get the Pass grade, will not be allowed to enroll in ACE for the next quarter. ACE will be recorded on transcripts as Pass or Fail.
Work for Credit Requirements
- Student must be employed.
- Complete the "Training Agreement" and return it to Ms. Quintana, ACE Instructor, during the first two weeks of the quarter.
- Complete the "Workman Compensation" form and return to Ms. Quintana, ACE Instructor, during the first two weeks of the quarter.
- "Submit Work Hours" for each pay stub through the online links.
- Place “Pay Stubs” in the white mail box located in room 2650 so hours submitted online can be verified and appropriate credit awarded.
Communicating ACE Work Study Progress
Three Week progress report: A student will be “Passing” if they have submitted appropriate paperwork for their employment.
Six Week Progress Report: A student will be “Passing” if they are still employed with appropriate paperwork and have logged a minimum of 40 hours of work online and submitted applicable pay stub documentation to verify.
Nine Week Grade Report: A student will be “Passing” if they are still employed with appropriate paperwork and have logged a minimum of 90 hours of work online and submitted applicable pay stub documentation to verify.
When a student changes jobs the same 2 forms must be submitted for the new employer.
The Training Agreement and Workman’s Compensation form must match the submitted paychecks.
Why must you have the forms and pay stubs? - The State of Colorado funds our schools for students' education. Since Eagle Academy awards credit toward graduation for hours students work, the State requires that we provide documentation that verifies that each student actually worked the hours for which they were awarded credit. In all other classes at Eagle, a student's "proof" for earning credit is documented with attendance, daily grades, quizzes, tests projects, etc. For work credit, however, the "proof" the State of Colorado is requesting is the "Training Agreement" form and copies of pay stubs. In addition to these, we must be certain employers carry Workman's Compensation insurance to ensure that our students are protected at work in the event they get hurt while on the job. This verification is vital since a student's work site is an extension of our school.
