5 Earning Credits Cooperative Education is a credit granting program Students earn two cooperative education credits based on a single related credit course. Exemption: If a related course is half – credit e.g. Career Studies or Civics, the cooperative education course may be scheduled for a maximum of 2 credits. Policy Revision March 2010. Note: when a student is earning cooperative education credits related to more than one course ( eg. 3 or more credits) the PPLP must include the learning expectations that relate to each course. All curriculum expectations can be included on one PPLP.

13 Accommodations Students with special needs: Consult with Special Education to research the required placement accommodations and include this information on the PPLP. Discuss the required accommodations with the placement supervisor, the student and the parents. The PPLP includes a space for teachers to add or identify accommodations required at the placement The cooperative education should provide strategies to the placement supervisor for student success Sharing information from the IEP is not permitted, unless signed authorization from the parents or the student self discloses.

14 Placement Learning Assessment of cooperative education students must incorporate written performance appraisals by the supervisor Placement supervisors are responsible for assessing students’ progress jointly with teacher Students assessed and evaluated only on the level of achievement of course expectations. Attendance and punctuality are reported separately on the report card Revise the expectations as necessary during monitoring meetings

15 Performance Appraisals Performance appraisals by a supervisor/employer provides assessment based on the student’s best performance at the placement The performance appraisal assesses the placement expectations. Must be two written performance appraisals in a semester, three for a non – semester program This data can be included by the cooperative education teacher in determining the final grade for the report card. The cooperative education teacher assesses and evaluates the level of achievement of the related curriculum expectations

16 Format of the PPLP Many schools and school boards have electronic programs for the PPLP The programs may require password access that is available only for teachers in the cooperative education program. Ask your mentor about the format of the PPLP in your school and school board
