Cooperative Work Education
• Are you going to be a Junior or Senior who currently has a part-time job?
• Are you interested in leaving school early to receive High School Credit for your work-experience?
• Do you want to apply employability skills and business education at the workplace?
• Do you want to discover how your current part-time job helps develop skills beyond the classroom?
The Stamford Public Schools Cooperative Work Education Program is designed to equip Juniors and Seniors (who will be preferred) with real-world occupational skills as well as a business-oriented curriculum to support a successful transition into the workforce. The Cooperative Work Education program is made up of two components: virtual modules with asynchronous and synchronous sessions and work-based learning experiences. Students earn 1 credit for the work-based learning and the virtual class-based learning experiences combined. Students may use their current job and must submit online academic work as well as attend the select synchronous online after school sessions. The CWE program is open to Juniors and Seniors at SHS and WHS who are interested in learning about the world of work. Signature from Administrator and approval from the CWE Coordinator is needed for complete enrollment.
Prerequisite: Signature from Administrator, approval from the CWE Coordinator.
