Excel introduces students to spreadsheet basics, such as formatting, basic formulas, and workbooks. PowerPoint teaches the basics of creating a presentation, including sound, video, photos, and layout.

Prequisites: 11th/12th grade; Instructor approval required; 2.0 GPA; No excessive tardies/absences (not on SART or SARB)
Students can earn credit by simply getting job! What better way to provide students with real world experiences than to have a current job in the workforce? This course will provide a basis for career preparation for 11th and 12th grade students by enabling them to acquire a firsthand knowledge of business. Students are given an opportunity to intern at a business site in the community or on campus to learn the various skills that will make them employable. A maximum of 10 units may be earned over a 1 year period (5 units variable credit per semester). The students will be required to attend class once per week for 1 hour. An outcome of this course is that students will seek (1) a letter of recommendation; (2) a job referral; and/or (3) an internship at the firm. Students will also be encouraged to explore career pathway possibilities. The Internship Program Curriculum will be guided by the state standards for Vocational Education as well as by the Expected School-Wide Learning Results developed by the Corona-Norco Unified School District Staff. Students may not be concurrently enrolled in Work Experience and the Internship class.
