Carpentry III is an advanced course that allows students to gain in-depth knowledge and hands-on experience in construction industry skills. Work-based learning methods of instruction for this course would provide the student with practical, on-the-job experience in addition to what he or she has already mastered in Carpentry I and II. Additional exploration of the carpentry profession and postsecondary options for continuing education and professional opportunities are also emphasized.
As noted in Superintendent’s Memo #058-17 (2-28-2017), this Career and Technical Education (CTE) course must maintain a maximum pupil-to-teacher ratio of 20 students to one teacher, due to safety regulations. The 2016-2018 biennial budget waiver of the teacher-to-pupil ratio staffing requirement does not apply.
