Cool Week for seniors

Career Opportunities on Location (COOL) Week - For Seniors

COOL Week is a structured, week-long, work-based learning experience for qualified 12th grade students in Leander ISD. Students are placed in a business or agency for a few days or a full week in a career field that they may otherwise not necessarily have access to observe. This program is called COOL Week because it gives you new Career knowledge and skills through Opportunities provided On a job Location rather than in the classroom setting. It will also give you a chance to apply knowledge and skills as well as observe in a job setting related to what you have been learning in your high school courses.

This year, COOL Week will take place February 18-22. To learn more, visit the LISD COOL Week website.
