This publication provides information and materials on the tech prep initiative of the Partnership for Academic and Career Education (PACE). It begins with questions and answers addressing the why and what of tech prep, for whom tech prep is designed, and what the goals of tech prep are. Diagrams illustrate PACE tech prep components, school-to-work transitions activities, the PACE model for tech prep, and methods of entry. Other contents include the following: a fact sheet on the PACE model, a list of requirements of effective education, a definition of integration, a depiction of the integration spectrum, a list of suggestions for curriculum integration, a diagram showing tech prep positioning of students for post-high school opportunities, a list of characteristics of the tech prep ideal, and a diagram of tech prep pathway options. The publication concludes with a diagram that depicts the interrelationships among the four participants in the tech prep initiative--secondary, postsecondary, business and industry, and parents and community--and charts that list their responsibilities.
