English, Joseph L.
The two main objectives of this project were: (1) to create a meaningful cooperative effort between the Kent County Vocational Technical School District and the Milford School District for the purpose of expanding vocational education, and (2) to establish a system to serve as a model for future expansion of vocational education in Delaware. Procedures included defining the administrative continuity, formation of an advisory council, selection of the project staff, and organizing the project to coincide with existing administrative structure. After faculty and staff were oriented, programs were developed which included: (1) technology for children in Grades K-12, (2) career development laboratories in Grade 5-6, (3) expanded career development program for Grades 5-8, and (4) diversified occupations program for Grades 9-12. Results of the project include: (1) a more positive attitude by teachers and administrators toward vocational education, (2) recognition of career education as the unifying thread from which education is woven, (3) expanded staff and facilities for K-12 career education programs, (4) realization by administrators, supervisors, counselors, teachers, parents, service organizations, business and industry personnel that career education is everyone's responsibility.
