The Cooperative Education (Co-op) is a partnership between the high school, local employers and students. Students are required to work approximately 15 hours per week and leave school early to go to work. Co-op is an opportunity for students to use skills learned in high school and learn new skills in the workplace. Students are required to keep a log of work activities and attend the Co-op class. Students are evaluated monthly by employers and have a Training Plan developed in conjunction with their employer. All students will be required to take the appropriate NOCTI test at the conclusion of the program.
Prerequisites: To be considered for Co-op, students must complete a Student Employment Training Agreement; have passing grades in all courses, good attendance, and a good discipline record (no suspensions) during the 11th grade year. Students must take the “YES” course (491) in conjunction with Co-op.
