“We’re actually giving opportunities to students to have student choice about what they want to take,” said Trigg County High School teacher Lacey Schrock, who touted the program at a recent Trigg County Board of Education meeting, along with fellow TCHS teacher Amy Breckel and TCHS Principal Shannon Burcham.
The program, she said, doesn’t involve just teachers and the schools but the community as a whole, and even surrounding communities. She also said that they’ve adopted many of their ideas from Danville High School arguing that it’s been successful there.
For that week, students can intern or shadow with various community businesses for a week, businesses that are related to what they want to learn. Schrock said they hope to expand it beyond those five days in the future. Burcham said the hope is that they will be able to exapand it when the school is fully “competency based.”
