A Pilot Project to Develop a Program of Occupational Training for School Alienated Youth. Final Report and Related Materials.
Connecticut State Board of Education, Hartford. Center for Vocational Arts.
The Center for Vocational Arts provided a work-study ungraded program for male and female school-alienated youths 15-21 years of age. The basic elements of the program were individual programs, vocational training, counseling, basic academic education, and supervised work experience. For 3 hours a day the students attended classes and for the remainder they held part-time jobs. Training courses were offered in automotive, food, health, office, and manufacturing operations, retailing services, landscaping and horticulture, and maintenance and repair operations. Students could enter the program at any time during the year, and when they demonstrated sufficient competency they received a high school diploma or vocational certificate. The report on the program also included research reports, an evaluation of the program, and a guide for developing multi-media learning activity which provided such teaching aids as film-loops, tapes, slides, and artifacts. The Second Interim Report, Appendix to Second Interim Report, and the Interim Report and Statistical Evaluation are available as ED 025 641, ED 025 642, and ED 016 868 respectively. (BC)
