Career Development and Enrichment Opportunities Program
The District 196 Career Development and Enrichment Opportunities Program offers a variety of courses designed to expose you to possibilities available in today’s and tomorrow’s workforce. These courses can help you understand your interests and talents, select potential career fields for the future, and decide upon appropriate post-secondary learning and training opportunities. They incorporate unique field trip opportunities and partnerships within the community, and strong academic preparation. We encourage you to take advantage of these opportunities and the expanded offerings they provide.
The Career Development and Enrichment Opportunities Program is offered to juniors and seniors enrolled at any of the district’s high schools. Courses are filled on a space available basis unless otherwise noted in the registration guide. Priority registration is given to seniors, followed by juniors. You may register for any of the Career Development and Enrichment Opportunities Program courses through the regular registration process at your high school.
Transportation is NOT provided by the district. Students must purchase a parking permit from their home school in order to park on the campus where the course is taught. Students are required to turn in a Release of Liability for Students Transporting Themselves Between School Sites During the School Day (707.13P).
