• Welcome


    Welcome to Sunset P-TECH ECHS!!  You have made an excellent choice.  In August you will begin working on your goal of obtaining your associates degree while completing your high school diploma and becoming career ready.  We want you to stay informed and prepare for the upcoming school year.  I am your Workplace Learning Coordinator and my job is to prepare you for your career choice.  You will have opportunities to meet great leaders, engage in activities that will educate you on your career, and prepare for internships.  I have several tasks that need to be completed before you return to school.  Don't worry, they are not hard, lol.  
    Step One:
    Please make sure you have made your pathway selection.  Please use your district Google account when accessing Google Forms and Google Classroom.  If you do not have a student id#, you will not be able to access it just yet.  If you were in the district last year you will use your student id# at stumail.org. 
    Step Two: 
    Please join the Workplace Learning REMIND. The main purpose of this REMIND is to be connected to Workplace Learning opportunities such as volunteer opportunities as well as internships or job alerts.   There will not be daily announcements on this REMIND but is one of your requirements. 
    Step Three:
    Join the WPL Google Classroom:
    This is another form of communication for scholarship posts, internship/job opportunities etc. This Google Classroom is everything Workplace Learning.  I will post some interesting videos this summer to just start acclimating you to the P-TECH way.  
    Step Four: 
     One of the things we want to do is add a picture of each student to our files.  Once you have joined the Google Classroom, you will see an assignment to add a picture of yourself.  Please make sure they are P-TECH appropriate.  Preferably a headshot.  You take it on your phone with no one in the picture with you.  In the assignment I included an example of good headshots and how to complete the task.  I can't wait to see your results.  Attach the photo to the assignment. 
    How to take your own headshot:
    REMEMBER parents, this is the students' tasks. That is how we start building independence, leadership and responsibility in the students.  So please gently remind them, but let them complete the tasks.  Believe me, it will payoff in the end.
