Cooperative Education

The Cooperative Education Program at Greater Lawrence Technical School gives students the opportunity to work for pay in their chosen field before graduation. Alternating weekly between work and classroom study, students in good academic standing and with good attendance may participate in the program.

Co-op gives the student the opportunity to gain work experience, assume responsibility, and develop a favorable work ethic. The employer evaluates the progress of a student, measuring performance, attitude, and skills. The Cooperative Education Program brings the school, the employer and the student together for mutual benefit. For more information, contact Dianne Norkiewics, Director of CTE/Coop Coordinator  at 978-686-0194 X5036.
