Job shadowing at Joliet Township High School is a requirement for all students enrolled in English 2 and is part of their summative evaluation grade for second semester. Students must complete a minimum of four (4) hours of a job shadowing experience. The experience should be related to their chosen career field and their Career Academy. Students may not job shadow a parent or guardian. Students may not take off a day of school to do their job shadowing experience.
There are three options students may choose from to do their Job Shadowing.
Option 1: Students secure their own site and make their own arrangements including transportation
Option 2: Students request a contact person from the school and then make their own arrangements including transportation
Option 3: Students choose to participate in the April Job Shadowing Days. The school makes the arrangements and provides transportation.
