37 Return-to-Work Return-to-Work - Faculty - Participating College & High School Faculty Members Will: Work closely with a designated industrial maintenance tech (or equivalent) and participate in “job shadow” activities for up to three consecutive days. Be willing to become “immersed” in realistic experiences relating to industrial maintenance and Mechatronics activities of which the business is involved. Participating Businesses Will: Assign an industrial maintenance tech (or equivalent) to work with a school faculty member with a “job shadow” for a period of up to three consecutive days. Provide a realistic experience for the faculty member related to industrial maintenance and Mechatronics activities which the business is involved. Return-to-Work

39 Comments from Return-to-Work Return-to-Work “The experience was awesome...” (Industrial Tech Department Chair with Kawasaki) “There is also a gap between parents’ perception of what is essential to their children’s success in the workplace and what they perceive as ‘success’ in education.” (Guidance Counselor with Goodyear)

40 Comments from Return-to-Work Return-to-Work “Although people are involved in all areas, a surprising percentage of the work is done with robotics. The level of mechanized processes is very impressive.” (English teacher with Cargill) “…Too often kids, and parents, think that they have to get a 4 year college degree, but in reality there are some excellent employment opportunities for kids willing to just get some specialized training in various technical fields, training that is available at a fraction of the cost of a four year degree.” (Superintendent with MetalQuest)
