2421.01 Policy_Students as Trainees

The Board of Education recognizes the value of providing students with experiences as part of their preparation for
productive employment and appreciates the cooperation of local employers in accommodating such training
activities at their places of business.
The Board authorizes the Superintendent to develop work-site training programs as part of the vocational education
curriculum. S/he shall develop administrative procedures whereby all such programs are reviewed to determine
whether or not an employer relationship has been established according to criteria established by the Supreme
Court in adjudicating cases related to the Fair Labor Standards Act. Particular attention should be paid to
community-based programs for students with disabilities and to vocational education programs in which students
are producing goods or services for sale and the District is the recipient of the income therefrom.
