Co-op courses to count more toward KEES requirements High school students enrolled in career and technical education programs are getting a boost in how cooperative education coursework counts toward the KEES curriculum requirement.

Effective with the 2018–2019 school year, each cooperative education course approved by the Office of Career and Technical Education (CTE) will count toward the annual KEES curriculum requirement. Before this change, cooperative education coursework could be counted only as one of five courses toward the KEES curriculum, regardless of the number of co-op courses or credits a student completed. The below chart provides examples with a comparison to illustrate the change.
