Senior-ranked students in the Industrial Maintenance Technology (IMT) program at the Laurel County Schools Center for Innovation (CFI) have the opportunity to participate in a cooperative placement with local employers. Students that participate in the program have established good academic standing, earned faculty recommendations, and must meet employer qualifications. “Our students are preparing themselves for a successful transition to the workforce by gaining real-work employability skills while still in high school,” said Mr. Gary Karr, IMT Program Coordinator.
“We are pleased to provide co-op placements for these students that will help them to develop their work ethic, build upon and acquire new skills, and have paid experiences that can move them forward into their careers,” remarked Ms. Vickie Hobbs, Cooperative Placement Coordinator.
“We have established a very successful Work-Based Learning Program over the years at the CFI. I am very proud of the students and their demonstration of effective workplace principles and developing their career potential,” said Dr. James M. Davis, Principal.
