Attention current sophomores and juniors!  Are you interested in making money while gaining career experience?  Would you like to have an early release next school year so that you can go to a job?  Consider Cooperative Office Education.  Students in Cooperative Office Education leave school at 1:00 every day and are matched with an employer who will teach them business related skills on the job.  Students earn a high school credit for working hours on their job.  Every effort is made to place the student in a job that matches his or her career goals.  The high school co-op credit enhances your resume and transcript because it demonstrates that you deliberately sought out career-specific experience.  Applications are available from your business teacher or in Guidance and are due by February 23rd.  See Mrs. Boswell in Room 108 for more information
