Curriculum Articulation with Secondary Institutions.
Each year, Chemeketa Community College (CCC) hosts a meeting of secondary school and college administrators to discuss articulation issues affecting high school students, to develop procedures for increasing the smooth transfer of secondary students to the college, and to pursue projects of mutual benefit. An outgrowth of the spring 1981 articulation meeting was the development of the Cooperative Vocational Education Project, which involved CCC and the North Marion School District in an effort to share resources, expertise, and costs in a pilot data processing program. The project involved the following steps: (1) establishing a planning task force; (2) identifying the project's mission, goals, and objectives; (3) planning the curriculum; and (4) implementing the curriculum. Several advantages have accrued from the joint project. Most importantly, high school students have access and the opportunity to learn new vocational skills, have the option to receive high school and college credit for the courses and the flexibility to apply the knowledge and skills to either vocational or academic goals, and have the opportunity to receive current, up-to-date instruction in data processing using the expertise of college faculty. Another benefit, from the tax-payers' perspective, is that costs are reduced as there is no duplication of programs and resources. A final benefit is the positive constructive relationship fostered between the high school and college. (LAL)
