The Cadet Teaching program provides students in grade twelve with organized exploratory teaching experiences in kindergarten through grade nine. All teaching experiences will be preplanned by the cooperative education teacher-coordinator and the supervising teacher(s) who are interested in providing cadet teachers with experiences in (1) classroom organization, (2) classroom management, (3)curriculum and instruction (4) observations of teaching, and (5) instructional experiences.
Study topics and background reading will provide the cadet teachers with information concerning the teaching profession and the nature of the cadet teacher's assignments. Evaluation will be based upon the cadet teacher's cooperation, day-to-day practical performance, and class assignments. The total workload of the cadet teaching experience is comparable to those for other subjects in the high school curriculum. Students must provide their own transportation.
Students may be offered the opportunity to tutor in the HOSTS program. The HOSTS program (Help One Student To Succeed) provides high school students with a highly organized tutoring experience that will assist elementary school students.

The HOSTS instructor will provide individualized lesson plans to be used in daily tutoring sessions. Training will be provided on how to use the HOSTS tutoring materials.
