Advanced Technology Tech Prep Partnership for Northern Kane Regional Delivery System. July 1, 1990-June 30, 1991. Final Report.
Elgin Community Coll., IL.
A 1-year project conducted by Elgin Community College (ECC) with the cooperation of Illinois School District #300 accomplished the following: (1) developed a curriculum to meet business and industry needs; (2) strengthened basic skills instruction in mathematics, science, and computers; (3) developed a 3-2-2 program allowing high school seniors to pursue an entry-level college program and a technology program of their career choice and start the technology program during the last year of high school; and (4) prepared these students for further education or employment. The pilot project enrolled 13 high school seniors in automotive repair and computer-assisted design/drafting. Marketing materials were developed and distributed to students and parents, working relationships with local businesses were established, agreements between ECC and local school districts were signed, and a three-college seminar on articulation was conducted. Student enrollment jumped from the first year's 13 students from 2 high schools to 50 students from 4 high schools for the second year, and the program was expected to gain momentum during the succeeding years. (The report includes an evaluation summary, a list of 25 human resources, agreement samples, and publicity materials.) (KC)
