Research and Development Project for the Establishment of Career Education: K-12 in Regional District 13. Final Report.
Connecticut Regional School District 13, Durham.
A research and development staff consisting of six teachers from various disciplines, together with a school-community advisory committee comprised of members of the business community, parents, and students, was established to research a career education program for Connecticut Regional District 13. Through a literature review and the results of four surveys sent to teachers, parents, students, and industry, it was concluded that: (1) A need and interest for a career education program for Kindergarten through Grade 12 does exist; (2) This program should be integrated into the curriculum; (3) School-industry and school-community cooperation will permit work experience opportunities, provide resource materials, and provide advice, and (4) The program's success will depend on the establishment of curriculum committees, inservice teacher workshops and training, and the appointment of a qualified career education coordinator. General objectives and recommendations for the district are stated, followed by more specific objectives and recommendations for the elementary, middle, and high schools. For each objective, possible methods of implementation are outlined. A 4-phase career education program would include: (1) the development of a positive self-image, (2) awareness of the world of work at the elementary level, (3) vocational exploration for the middle grades, and (4) direct occupational experiences at the high school level.
