Career Development and Enrichment Opportunities Program

The Career Development and Enrichment Opportunities Program at District 196 offers our students a variety of courses designed to expose them to the possibilities in today's workforce, such as health care, automotive maintenance, construction trades and hospitality. These courses help students understand their interests and talents, select potential career fields for the future, and decide upon appropriate postsecondary learning and training opportunities. Program courses incorporate unique field trip opportunities and partnerships within the community, as well as strong academic preparation. 


This program is offered to juniors and seniors enrolled at any of our high schools. Courses are filled on a space available basis unless otherwise noted in the registration guide. Priority registration is given to seniors. Students register for any of the Career Development and Enrichment Opportunities Program courses through the regular registration process at their high school.


Transportation is provided to students who attend a Career Development course that is not in their home high school during Period 1-2 or Period 6-7.  Students who plan to transport themselves and/or carpool to Career Development courses are required to turn in a Release of Liability for Students Transporting Themselves Between School Sites During the School Day (707.13P). Students must purchase a parking permit from their home school in order to park on the campus where the course is taught

Earning College Credit

By successfully completing courses that are articulated with postsecondary institutions, students may earn college credit or a course waiver to enable them to enroll in the next level of a college program. Students should ask their instructor about concurrent enrollment credits and articulation agreements that may be offered in class.
