ALABAMA SIMULATED WORKPLACE
MCCTC continues to implement the Alabama Simulated Workplace model. The Alabama Simulated Workplace is "focused on middle and high school students – preparing them for a lifetime of achievement in school and their future careers. It accomplishes this by teaching them about modern workplace requirements and industry best practices."
Each of our CTE programs on campus have created a business name and are working to implement the beginning stage of ASW: hiring a workforce (enrolling students), developing a company name, developing an organizational structure, and creating a company policy manual, and implementing an employee badge and time clock system.
We are super excited to see how the implementation of the ASW will benefit our students!

Safety First: No Phone Zone
As we implement the Alabama Simulated Workplace, MCCTC is now a "No Phone Zone" when inside any of the buildings, classrooms, or shops. Cell phones in a shop/lab setting are a safety hazard and distraction to one in the workplace.
Cell phone lockers have been made available for students to secure their phones should they forget and bring them inside.
Failing to follow appropriate cell phone policies for their business (class) will be as follows:
- 1st offense- phone is turned into main office; student may pick up at end of class
- 2nd offense- phone is turned into main office; parent must pick up between 3:30pm and 4:15pm
- 3rd offense- phone is turned into main office; parent must pick up between 3:30pm and 4:15pm; student assigned Honor Codes
- Additional Offenses- phone is turned into main office; parent must pick up between 3:30pm and 4:15pm; student will receive In/Out of school suspension
