Summer Co-op

​​​Summer Co-op Coordinator: Lindsay Reynen

​Who is eligible to enroll?​​​

All current grade 11 and 12 LKDSB students.

​What is the priority of acceptance?  

Due to the limited capacity in the summer co-op program, spots will be prioritized and allocated in the following manner:

  1. Grade 11 or 12 age students who require credits to get back on track for graduation. Students must have a placement arranged already.
  2. SHSM College/University bound students entering Grade 12 whose regular timetable cannot accommodate a two-period co-operative education placement; or, a graduate who is not returning but still needs two co-op credits to complete the SHSM requirements.
  3. All other senior LKDSB students wishing to obtain co-op credits during the summer months.

How to apply?

  • Complete the application form and return it to your Guidance Department by June 14.
  • The Student Services Department will submit the completed applications for all school-approved applicants to the LKDSB Summer Co-op Coordinator.
How does the program work?
  • Students are responsible for arranging their own placement, which will be reviewed and approved by the Co-operative Education Teacher. The Employer must be agreeable to having teachers monitor the student at the placement.
  • All employer supervisors must agree to teacher monitoring visits and evaluations for the placement.
  • If the student is part of the SHSM program, the placement must be related to the SHSM sector in which the student is enrolled.
  • ​Students must complete the application and have it approved by the home school.
  • Students will use Brightspace, myBlueprint, MTEL and other online forums to complete mandatory preplacement activities. Teachers will contact students the week of June 17th. Pre-placement will begin mid-June online and must be completed by Thursday, June 27th. Pre-placement activities take approximately 25 hours.
  • Students in 2 credits will complete 180 or more hours of work and 1 credit will complete 90 or more hours of work at their co-op placement between July 2nd and August 9th. Students must complete weekly logs and assignments as part of the program.
  • Students are responsible for their own transportation to their summer placements.
