The CTE Business has three main parts: The class, School Store, and FBLA. When taking this program you are also enrolled in 10 classes from NPC. Adding up to a total of twenty-eight college credits. The school store was created by the business program and is run by them as well. When enrolled in a business class you are an automatic member of FBLA (Future Business Leaders of America).
The business CTE includes Business I, II, and III. Because of the dual enrollment with NPC, Business III counts as a fourth-year math credit. The classes you get credit for include the following: Intro to Business BUS100, Supervision BUS105, SMB BUS110, Fundamentals of Bookkeeping BUS112, Marketing BUS220, Management BUS210, Entrepreneurship BUS115, Personal Finance BUS106, PCS BUS102, Computerized Accounting BUS202, and Accounting BUS102. The accounting is the reason the class count as a fourth year math.
The Cougar Store is appreciated by many. It is open before school, after school, and at lunch It was created to, one, add hours required for the college courses. And two, to improve the school by making it convenient to get school supplies, and cougar gear. The students in the business classes staff the store. They stock shelves, take inventory, monitor the store, and check people out at the front.
Although FBLA is not required for every business student, it is a key aspect of the business program. There is competitions, fundraisers and even scholarships available when participating in the club.
The Business Program at Show Low High School has many benefits for its students as well as for the school.
