Interdisciplinary Cooperative Education is a unique educational program for seniors combining on-the-job work experience with classroom instruction and training in a career field directly related to a student’s academic preparation and career objectives. ICE creates opportunities to learn in the workplace where students develop and refine attitudes, skills, and knowledge needed to enter and succeed in a career. The student, employer and teacher develop a training plan and agreement, and employers serve as on-the-job trainers using the plan as a guide. Additionally, students spend 1 afternoon per week in the classroom at Area 30 Career Center where they participate in activities connected to their career objectives and workplace experiences.
