Job Shadowing at Colleton County Schools

National Groundhog Job Shadow Day is a yearly student activity which took place this year on Friday, February 2.  Students at Colleton County High School were encouraged to shadow in their career cluster area which coincides with their Individual Graduation Plan.  Job shadowing prepares a student for his or her future career giving them a first-hand idea of what the expectations are in the workplace.  As students job shadowed in their career cluster, they were to learn more about work ethics, such as honesty and commitment in the workplace, being prepared, being punctual, maintaining confidentiality, and many others.

The next date to Job Shadow at CCHS is on Monday, February 19, 2018, and the students may see their grade level Career Facilitator to obtain the necessary forms.  The Career Facilitators monitor the job shadow activity through phone calls and job site visits to ensure accountability.
