& Class Expectations


                                  Course Descriptions
Business Information Management I (BIM I)
     Students implement personal and interpersonal skills to strengthen individual performance in the workplace and in society and make a successful transition to the workforce and postsecondary education.  Students apply technical skills to address business applications of emerging technologies, create word-processing documents, develop a spreadsheet, formulate a database, and make an electronic presentation using appropriate software.
      BIM I Syllabus 
     Career Preparation I
          Career Preparation I provides opportunities for students to participate in a learning
          experience that combines classroom instruction with paid business and industry
          employment experiences and supports strong partnerships among school, business,
          and community stakeholders.  The goal is to prepare students with a variety of skills
          for a fast-changing workplace.  This instructional arrangement should be an advanced
          component of a student's individual program of study.  Students are taught
          employability skills, which include job-specific skills applicable to their training
          station, job interview techniques, communication skills, financial and budget
          activities, human relations, and portfolio development.  Career preparation is relevant,
          rigorous, supports student attainment of academic standards, and effectively
          students for college and career success. 
Career Preparation II
      Career Preparation II develops essential knowledge and skills through classroom
            technical instruction and on-the-job training in an approved business and industry
            training area.  Students will develop skills for lifelong learning, employability,
            leadership, management, work ethics, safety, and communication as a group;
            however, each student will have an individual training plan that will address
            job-specific knowledge and skills.  Approved training sponsors will provide paid
            occupational training for a student.  The training sponsor will assist the teacher in
            providing the necessary knowledge and skills for the student's specific career
