Inter-Related Cooperative Education

This course is designed to help students bridge the gap between school and the world of work.  The course includes making decisions about the work place, career planning, entering the work force, the individual as a worker, and making financial decisions.  Students also study different types of training, completing job resumes, applying for jobs, working with others, using credit, and buying insurance.  The purpose of this course is twofold; students are provided practical work experience while still in high school and gain practical experience in applying for and interviewing for jobs.  This work experience provides on-the-job training in the career area of the student’s choice.  The students will take regularly scheduled classes part of the day and a co-op work experience the other part of the day totaling a minimum of 15 hours per week.  Students must apply through the LACC and will be interviewed.
