Cooperative Education Program (CO-OP)
The purpose of the Cooperative Education experience in career and technical programs is to provide the student with an opportunity to perform the duties of a particular occupation, understand its challenges, and be paid as an employee. The Cooperative Education experience is not obligatory on the part of the school program but rather a privilege extended to enhance employability. Students interested in the Cooperative Education Program need to meet specific criteria to be eligible for the experience. Guidelines may be obtained from the Cooperative Program Coordinator.
