Cooperative Education (Co-Op) is a unique aspect of education that integrates classroom learning with supervised work experience in the business community. Prior to the start of the senior year, eligible students apply for part-time employment in areas related to their chosen fields of study. Students work at approved training sites with written training plans. Eligibility to participate in co-op is determined by meeting the criteria based on grades, attendance, and a recommendation from the GCCTC instructor. Co-op provides an excellent transition from high school to the world-of-work.

This employment experience will assist students in establishing and achieving goals appropriate to their career goals: “I hear and I forget; I see and I remember; I do and I understand.” This unique educational method includes alternating periods of classroom study and periods of practical experiences. In order to participate in Co-Op, you should follow these guidelines:
  • Co-Op papers will be issued to seniors at the bginning of the school year or juniors during the second semster
  • The opportunity at the training site must be related to the program of study cluster area
  • Students on Co-Op are required to maintain their academic subjects
  • The students and their parents or guardian are responsible for proper insurance
  • Students must be in attendance on a regular basis for their academic classes
  • It is the students’ responsibility to keep records of grades, absenteeism, tardiness and training experience
