Campus Based Enterprise is a business within the school setting.  The student's at Lake Creek High School have created a business in order to learn about the marketing, manufacturing and selling of a product. 

First Six Weeks:

  • Decide on business

  • What will we produce to sell?

  • How will we do this?

  • Where will we do this?

  • What do we need to make this possible?

Second Six Weeks

  • Marketing the products

  • Making a brochure

  • Setting up locations to sell

Third Six Weeks

  • Research ingredients/what is needed to make our products

  • Find best prices and how much

  • Best place to purchase

  • Begin production

Fourth Six Weeks-Six Sixth Weeks

  • Production

  • Make calls and complete paperwork for shows

  • Find businesses to sell our products

Vocational Experience allows student's the opportunity to leave campus one to two class periods early to go to work.  They are required to present pay stubs, performance reviews, and self assessments to the VAC teacher to confirm monthly employment.  The VAC teacher maintains contact with the employer so they can assist with job training and any issues that may arise.

Pre Employment teaches students the importance of getting a job, work ethics, completing a job application, what to do at a job interview, and how to maintain a job.  We work on resumes, practice job interviews, and discuss ways to be a good employee. The majority of the final exam for semester one is to independently complete a job application and the final exam for semester two will require the students to participate in a mock job interview.
