Interdisciplinary Cooperative Education (ICE)
The primary purpose of a cooperative education program is to prepare a student for entry-level employment. However, the program could also serve as a means for a student to explore entry level work in a future career. The program combines classroom instruction with on-the-job learning experiences consistent with the student's occupational objectives. The program would have a class-related period and a regularly scheduled time that the student would be released from school two periods to be employed throughout the school year. Students enrolled in this program must make a commitment for the entire year.
SELECTION CRITERIA: Student should have a stated career objective in an occupation, be responsible for his own transportation to and from job, should be physically, emotionally, mentally, and morally capable of performing his career objective, be an incoming junior or senior, should have an acceptable attendance record, have parental consent, be willing to accept responsibility and follow instructions, and should have the ability to work with others. Student will need to fill out an application, provide references, and will then be interviewed by the Coordinator, Principal, and possible employer. The Coordinator will need to have a conference with the student and his/her parent (s).
