Cooperative Occupational Education

Cooperative Occupational Education is designed for senior students interested in pursuing various careers.

Students are released from school two class hours per school day for their paid/unpaid cooperative education work experience and participate in five class hours per week of related classroom instruction.

Classroom instruction focuses on providing students with job survival skills, career exploration skills related to the job, and improving students’ abilities to interact positively with others.

Written training agreements and individual student training plans are developed and agreed upon by the employer, student and coordinator.

The coordinator, student and employer assume compliance with federal, state and local laws and regulations.
