Each year, we ask participating host companies to sign these terms and conditions for hosting interns through the CTE Summer Scholars program. Please review all items - items 4, 5, and 9 have changed since last year. If you have any questions, please contact us at CTESS@schools.nyc.gov.
Interns in the CTE Summer Scholars program are employees of the NYC DOE. In agreeing to participate in CTE Summer Scholars, host companies agree to the following terms and conditions for all interns placed at the site:
- To confirm that students have appropriate clearance to work from the Department of Education Work-Based Learning Resource Center before allowing them to start. (Students and internship supervisors will receive a confirmation e-mail from WBLBOX@schools.nyc.gov when they are approved to start work).
- To provide an internship for students that conforms in length and time to the CTE Summer Scholars program calendar as published on this website.
- To keep and maintain time and attendance records for students and to ensure that students do not work beyond the stated program maximums
- To provide a safe, healthy and hazard-free environment in which students will work. Worksites must be in commercially-zoned workspaces, not in private residences, and the host organization must own or lease the space, or have a legal agreement for use of the space during hours that the intern is scheduled to work there. Students may not work from a private residence without prior permission from program staff.
- To adhere to all federal, state and local regulations regarding the employment of minors.
- To abide by the NYC Department of Education non-discrimination policy (see below) in selecting students for internships and assigning tasks.
- To assign one or more responsible adults whose responsibilities include supervising students, assessing student progress, addressing problems students may encounter on the job, collaborating to design job specific tasks, and facilitating work-based training projects.
- To provide students with work experience commensurate with students’ capabilities. The work experience should enable students to prepare for employment, and the work experience may be modified to augment and enhance the skills acquired by students on the job.
- To provide supplies, equipment, and services, and transportation / subway fare necessary for assigned activities and tasks.
- To submit an evaluation report for each student at least once during the course of the program, and sign off on student assignments during the course of the internship.
- To permit visits by the program staff and NYCDOE personnel for purposes of interviewing and observing students during their work routines, and interviewing work site supervisors.
- To inform program staff about any concerns about the intern's performance as soon as they occur, and to consult with the program before taking any action such as suspension or termination of the internship, or discussing such options with the student.
Student interns participating in CTE Summer Scholars are employees of the DOE, and students are also receiving credit for the internship as part of their school program.
