An effective school-based enterprise (SBE) provides students with the unique opportunity to develop and practice real-world industry experience while serving the needs of their campus and/or community! This course is designed to help participants successfully develop and manage a successful SBE.
Participants will analyze the key components of SBEs and identify the differences between this model and other forms of work-based learning. Participants will also identify the key elements necessary for planning and implementing a school-based enterprise, including best practices and record-keeping requirements. Throughout this course, participants will develop a business plan for their proposed enterprise.
Upon successful completion of the course, which includes submission of homework, participants will receive an ADE certificate for 15 professional development clock hours, which equates to one (1) semester hour of coursework.
