Timeline for Completion:
Completion of this learning activity packet and the coinciding assessments is
integral to the success of students who do not start the program in 9 th grade/Level 1
(assuming the student has not received the curriculum content elsewhere). As a
pre-requisite for all other levels, students entering the program in 10 th, 11th or 12th
grade will not be permitted to participate in hands-on kitchen activities until they
can demonstrate competency in the area of workplace safety. The learning activity
packet should be assigned to the student for guided, independent study upon
entrance into the program, taking no longer than one quarter to complete. The
learning activity packet may also be used for students in Level 1 who need
additional remediation.
