    The purpose of the Regional Safe Schools Cooperative Education (RSSCEP) program is to provide alternative cooperative education for suspended or expelled youth due to gross misconduct who are 16 years or older and are administratively transferred to a Regional Safe Schools Program (RSSP) at the discretion of the local school district in lieu of suspension or expulsion or have been expelled or suspended in excess of twenty (20) days and administratively transferred to a RSSP.

    This program is specifically aimed at assisting suspended or expelled youth to become reoriented and motivated to complete their education by allowing a student to participate in career-related classroom and structure cooperative work experience provided by the private sector for not more than 20 hours a week. The Regional Safe Schools Cooperative Education Program is designed to motivate and encourage students to complete high school while enabling them to make a successful transition to postsecondary education, employment, or other career advancement opportunities. The program emphasizes career related classrooms in a structured and cooperative work experience environment, and preparation and motivation through a combination of paid work experience. One of the goals of the program is to provide students at risk of not completing high school with career options.
