South Carolina State Dept. of Education, Columbia. Office of Vocational Education.
As defined by the Vocational Amendments of 1976, cooperative education is a program (method) of vocational education for persons who, through written cooperative agreements between the school and employers, receive instruction, including required academic courses and related vocational instruction by alternation of study in school with a job in any occupational field; but these two experiences must be planned and supervised by the school and employers so that each contributes to the student's education and to his or her employability. The purpose of this guide is to provide basic guidelines for cooperative education and legal principles which will help local school districts plan and implement quality programs utilizing the cooperative method of instruction. The guidelines provided are particularly applicable to the state of South Carolina. The guide provides instruction on how to organize, implement, and evaluate cooperative programs. In addition, it covers legal aspects of cooperative programs, teacher-coordinator activities in cooperative programs, and teacher-coordinator accountability. Appendixes contain sample forms for use in a cooperative vocational education program. (KC)
