Cost Analysis of the Implementation of Career Education Instructional Packages. Final Report.
Bliss, Sam W.; And Others
The objective of this study was to determine the cost of implementing 27 career education instructional packages in 77 Mesa (Ariz.) public school classrooms, grade K-6. Costs were part of the regularly budgeted classroom, instructional, and related costs rather than new ones. Costs for implementing federal units were $.008 and for state units were $.009 per pupil per minute. A total of $12,393.58 from the regularly budgeted funds was spent implementing the units. The top three items were teacher in-class teaching time, teacher planning and preparation time, and resource materials. On the average a teacher spends two to three minutes of preparation for every five minutes of presentation. Modification of some of the packages is recommended due to unusually high preparation time or materials costs. Appendixes contain data collection instruments and a listing of the career education instructional package. (MS)
