The six sections of the guide cover the following topics: the philosophy and benefits of co-op, types of co-op programs in Vermont, the role of the co-op teacher-coordinator, program implementation, co-op for special needs students, and legal issues. Extensive appendixes to the document consist of application forms training agreements, training plans, evaluation forms, other miscellaneous forms, laws and legal considerations, and suggested resources.
