Co-op - Cooperative Education

Students are in paid positions with companies. The emphasis is on allowing students to use and improve their transferable work skills. Supervisors who agree to be "Co-op" supervisors provide feedback by completing a transferable work skills appraisal feedback is given at least two times during the year.  This feedback/communication is an important piece in the process of building a stronger employee. Students earn a paycheck while earning school credit.
  • Students attend a classroom seminar once every 4 days.
  • To earn 1 credit, students must work a minimum of 300 hours.
  • (With a 40-week school year, this equates to approximately 7 – 8 hrs./week.)
