InterAmerica Research Associates, Lawrence, KS.
A two-year project was undertaken in Kansas to develop a five-year plan for career education in the state. The first year resulted in (1) a brief summary of previous work done in Kansas since the introduction of the career education concept, (2) establishment of a definition of career education, (3) a description of various resources that can be utilized in career education planning, (4) a proposed management plan, (5) specific goals and objectives, (6) a proposed plan for interagency cooperation, and (7) proposed strategies. The second year resulted in the production of two documents: "State Plan for Career Education in Kansas" and the "Handbook for Developing, Implementing, and Evaluating Career Education Programs in Kansas Schools." Among the project's major activities were the following: coordinating five advisory groups' efforts in developing and validating the plan; conducting a statewide needs assessment; and instituting a state career education information bank. When evaluated, the project was considered successful in meeting its goals. As for dissemination activities, a statewide conference was held and newsletters were distributed, as well as 850 copies of the proposed plan. (The appendixes include the first-year draft and the approved version of the state plan; the handbook named above; developmental information; validation instruments and needs assessment instruments; and dissemination literature.)
