4 General Guidelines for WBL Work-based learning experiences include: cooperative education, mentoring, shadowing, internship, clinical experience, entrepreneurial program and school-based enterprise. All WBL experiences should have an agreement including objectives, worksite information, method of travel, date(s), and student, parent, and teacher signatures. When the placement is a paid experience, the work site must have workers’ compensation. The teacher or designee should visit the worksite before students go to work to ensure that the experience will be safe and meet the objectives of the training. Teachers are encouraged to use non-teaching days such as snow days; district professional days, beginning of the year, fall and spring breaks, and end of the year to develop and enhance WBL sites. Contacts through program advisory committees provide an excellent opportunity for WBL placement. Teachers should check the web links on Slide 10 for valuable resources and information.
5 General Guidelines for Coop The U.S.Department of Labor provides for an exemption for “student learners” to coop in the following hazardous occupations: Operation of Power-Driven Woodworking Machines (5); Operation of Power-Driven Metal Forming, Punching, and Shearing Machines (8); Slaughtering, Meat Packing or Processing, or Rendering (10); Operation of Paper Products Machines (12); Operation of Circular Saws, Band Saws, and Guillotine Shears (14); Roofing Operations (16); and Excavating Operations (17).

6 General Guidelines for Coop (Continued) In addition to the coop agreement, you may want to prepare a page for “Rules for Coop” to include: Student may not attend coop if he/she does not attend school the same day. Student must be passing all classes at the high school and technical center. If the student if fired, the student does not have the right to another coop job; however, the teacher MAY grant permission for another job. Student must consult with teacher before quitting a job. When two or more students are driving/riding to coop together, get permission in writing from all parents for the students to ride together. The student must abide by school rules while at coop.

The WBL agreement: Must include name, address, phone number of student, school, and training site; a list of tasks the student will perform on the job; and student’s work schedule, wage, and salary. Must include the student’s birth date and student ID number, objective (O*NET or career major certificate) and responsibilities of all the parties.

The employer is responsible for evaluating the student’s performance based on the tasks outlined in the WBL agreement. The evaluation grade should become part (if not all) of the student’s WBL grade. The evaluation should include name of the student, school, program, employer, employer contact information, evaluation period, evaluation criteria, employer comments, hours worked, signature of employer and date signed.
9 Standard 14 Work-Based Learning Visitation to the Worksite The teacher and/or WBL coordinator must visit the WBL work site at least once a semester.

The teacher/WBL coordinator must document the visits and may use the sample forms.
