IBx - Internships
Students in the Accelerated International Baccalaureate (IBx) program at Ingraham High School have the opportunity to participate in a work-site internship during their senior year. To be eligible to participate in this program, they must have taken at least one semester of a CTE-qualified course either prior to, or concurrent with, their internship. A list of CTE courses that students can take to meet this prerequisite can be found here. List of CTE Qualified Courses (PDF)
Students will be expected to work 90 hours per semester (paid internships require 180 hours of work per semester). The internship will be listed on the student’s official school transcript (0.5 credits per semester) and can be taken pass/fail, if desired, so as not to affect student’s class ranking.
Students are matched up with work-sites by a variety of means: some students already have an internship arranged by the time school starts in the Fall, other students will get ideas from discussing their interests with an internship adviser or by looking at a list of available options. All participating students will be matched up with a work-site by the middle of September 2016.
We are actively engaged in identifying work site opportunities for these highly capable students. If you know of a business or organization that might be open to hosting an intern, please fill out the top section of the attached “job listing” form and submit it to Joanne Patrick at Career & Technical Education (using contact info on form).
Submitting this form in no way commits you or your organization to hosting an intern - it simply provides contact information for a follow-up conversation with CTE staff. Please direct any questions about the CTE Internship program to Joanne Patrick: firstname.lastname@example.org
Internship Application Process
Deadline for Fall Semester 2016 Internships is June 1, 2016!
Below are links to important documents that each student must submit to CTE in order to participate in the internship program. Please note that students do not need to have identified a specific worksite prior to submitting the application. Students have all summer and even the first few weeks of the Fall quarter to be matched with a worksite.
It is strongly recommended that students submit these forms now to signal their intention to participate in the Internship program. Students who do not have forms on file at CTE will not have the option to participate in the Fall.
Please mail the completed forms to:
Joanne Patrick, Academy Coordinator
Seattle Public Schools
Box 34165 MS 31-671
