RESOLUTION NO. R99-1426
A resolution requesting the Metropolitan Board of Public Education to reinstate the Cooperative Education Program.
WHEREAS, the Metropolitan public school system previously has operated a Cooperative Education Program that allows juniors and seniors to attend one-half day classroom study work and to work the remaining one-half day in an appropriate work experience-related position; and
WHEREAS, this program allows students to gain exposure in the working world and allows them to put into practice on a daily basis the knowledge and skills being gained in school; and

WHEREAS, it is fitting and proper that the Cooperative Education Program be reinstated to benefit our students.

SECTION 1. That the Metropolitan County Council hereby goes on record as requesting the Metropolitan Board of Public Education to reinstate the Cooperative Education Program.
