Get Up To 2 Additional Credits For working:
The Co-op Grade will follow the same grading pattern as the class grades. If a requirement is not turned in by the due date, it will be considered late and the highest points that can be earned will be a 95. Points will continue to drop with each day the assignment is late. If you lose your job or quit without giving proper notice, you will receive an “F” for the nine-weeks or possibly be dismissed from the program. You are only allowed two job changes for the entire you. You must let Mrs. Collins know if you are changing jobs and the required paper work must be filled out.
The quarterly grade will be determined by combining the student’s classroom grade and coop grade based on the following percentage:
60% Classroom Grade + 40% Co-op Grade = Quarterly Grade
This is an optional experience. However, by agreeing to be a coop student, you have made a commitment to both the business and school to complete your requirements for additional credits.
