Idaho State plan for Career Education, 1978-79.
Lewis, Leila; And Others
In accordance with PL 93-380, Section 406, calling for the development of state plans for career education, this plan deals with elementary and secondary schools in Idaho. Following the definition of career education is a section on its conceptual base. The next section discusses career education as meeting a demand for educational reform. Then, previous career education efforts in Idaho are reviewed. Career education goals are identified for both the state department of education and the state itself. Target student learner outcomes are outlined for the following areas: (1) educational awareness, (2) self awareness, (3) occupational awareness, (4) decision making, (5) economic awareness, (6) leisure awareness, and (7) work entry preparation. Various program strategies are considered, such as curriculum infusion, special courses, guidance counseling, and placement. To aid in the successful local development of career education, a section is provided on activities shown to have functioned significantly in demonstration projects. Charts are included for both short- and long-range process goals, specifying activities, strategies, and parties responsible for meeting each goal. Evaluation of the state plan focuses on four aspects: content, input (which assesses attitudes and resources), process (which assesses strategies and activities), and product. Also included are plans for dissemination; funding; adult and postsecondary career education activities; planning, implementation, and administration by state education agency; organization and role of advisory council; assessment of career education needs; training and retraining of school personnel; and timelines for the state plan's development.
