The Upper Grand District School Board and the Wellington Catholic District School Board, in a unique and unparalleled partnership, have collaborated since 1976 to jointly manage the co-operative education program. Shared policies, procedures, facilities and personnel have strengthened the experiential learning programs for students. In September 2000, the Upper Grand District School Board and Wellington Catholic District School Board combined their individual Ontario Youth Apprenticeship Programs (OYAP) into a single OYAP program in 2000, and their Dual Credit program (2008) with joint personnel and practices.
