COOPERATIVE EDUCATION PROGRAM Students enrolled in one of the CTE career-focused programs may be eligible for the Cooperative Education Program. Students may earn additional credit through on the job training that is related to their technical education program by placement in a community business. Placements are approved and coordinated by the Career Coordinator. Credit is awarded at the rate of 0.5 credit for 270 hours and 1 credit for 540 hours (limit 1 credit per year). Any student who wishes to sign up for the Co-op Program must do so through the Career Coordinator in the CTE office, NOT through the School Counseling Department.
Advanced Career Education Internship:
This second-level internship experience is a one-semester (0.5 credit) elective requiring 100 worksite hours and may be an extension of students’ initial internship sites or students may select another location related to their career interests. Students must secure their internship site with the approval of the Career Coordinator. A major special project and presentation culminates the experience.
PREREQUISITE: Successful completion of Career Education Internship with a “B” or better and approval of the Career Coordinator.
NOTE: Applications may be obtained through the Career Coordinator located in the CTE office.
