• Work and Study

    Students enrolled in a Washoe County School District high school in grades 9-12 may apply to earn elective high school credit for working at a paid job.

    Procedures can be found here   

    • Each student is responsible for obtaining their own job.
    • Work and study credit may be earned at one-half (.5) credit for 180 hours of active participation (actual hours worked).  
      • Sick time, PTO or vacation does not count towards the hours worked.
      • Overtime can be counted.
    • Total credits earned from Work and Study and other alternative means may not exceed a maximum of four (4) credits.  If no other alternative credits have been earned, then four (4) credits can be earned in Work and Study.

    **Students who are interested in Work Study should let their counselor know (ie before expecting credit)**
