The process begins when students are recommended by their vocational education teacher as being ready to work in the trade. These “job-ready” students are matched with an employer who offers work hours in a job related to the student’s career program. Students participate in Co-op during their technical-vocational cycles.
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 on the job (30 hours per cycle). These should be turned in Day 1 to the Vocational Teacher’s mailbox or to the Cooperative Coordinator. The time cards must be signed by the employer.
- Students must report their absences to their employer and the school.
