Case Studies in Practical Career Guidance, Number 3: Career and Educational Planning Program Pioneer Senior High School, San Jose, California.
Arutunian, Carol Ann
The purpose of the Career and Educational Planning Program, a nine-week course at Pioneer Senior High School in San Jose, California, is to help students assess their personal characteristics, study career opportunities, and set tentative long range goals. It is a good example of federal funds having a long-lasting impact on a school. The program has developed from an experimental, research project to an independent program run by the local school. Two other features are unique to this program: (1) a student needs assessment was conducted as part of the first step in designing the program and its results influenced program development and (2) formative and summative evaluations of the program were conducted. Other documents in this series are CG 008 165 through CG 008 166 and CG 008 168 through CG 008 176. (Author)
