Riverbend Tech-Prep. Final Report.
Lewis and Clark Community Coll., Godfrey, IL.
Calhoun, School, and Southwestern High Schools, within the Lewis and Clark Community College (LCCC) district in Illinois, formed interdisciplinary planning teams of academic and vocational faculty, guidance counselors, and administrators during the 1990-91 school year. Building on administrative and teacher support, each site developed standards for identifying and recruiting tech prep students, developed a model program sequence, and targeted specific courses for development and revision. In conjunction with LCCC faculty and staff, over 60 secondary personnel and 20 LCCC personnel participated in inservice and industrial practicum activities. A steering committee planned and participated in activities. Five additional high schools were added to the project as planning sites for 1991-92. The project achieved three objectives: (1) recruited, assessed, advised, and monitored student participants in the Tech-Prep Associate Degree Program; (2) enlisted academic and vocational teachers in the program and curriculum development; and (3) forged alliances among high schools, community colleges, universities, and industry. (This document contains a workshop agenda and a flyer on articulation credit at LCCC. Three appendices provide a general education task force summary of 1990-1991 highlights, list of tech prep team members, and project information and press releases.) (NLA)
