Seniors who are enrolled in a vocational program for a minimum of 2 years and sometimes, exceptional eleventh grade students who have two years in the program, are recommended by their vocational instructors to participate in the program. The decision to accept a student for Co-op is based on the student’s vocational skill level, academic grades, attendance, and conduct records. Students must have OSHA training and employability certification.
The students are responsible for the following:
- Students must attend their academic classes each day and must be in school if they are not participating in the Cooperative Program Placement.
- If the job assignment is terminated for any reason, the students must immediately return to school and report directly to the High School Administrator.
- MyAccess assignments and employer assessments must be returned to validate hours worked the job (30 hours per cycle). These should be turned in Day 1 to the Vocational Teacher’s mailbox to the Cooperative Coordinator. The time cards must be signed by the employer.
- Students must report their absences to their employer and the school.
