Cooperative education programs permit the student to be released from the school campus to work part-time or full-time for an employer. The student will report to the assigned job, which is referred to as the student’s Training Site. The student/employee always represents the school district and is expected to demonstrate professional qualities of responsibility, dependability, ethical behavior, and maturity while performing tasks for the employer. The purpose of cooperative education programs is to provide the student with competencies developed through paid, supervised, on-the-job training related to an occupational goal.
