Kindergarten through 12th Grade Project in Career Development and Bridging the Gap Between School and Work: Final Report.
Watertown Independent School District 1, SD.
Divided into four phases, this project in career education includes the following aspects: planning of project policies and activities and securing resource materials; orientation of the school district staff to the project; integration of occupational information, exploration, and career education concepts into the curriculum, identification of potential dropouts, intensive occupational counseling for all junior and senior high school students; and data collection for the final evaluation and dissemination of project materials. Placing more emphasis on counseling in the classroom and bringing the teacher counselor team into a closer working relationship constituted another goal of the project which created change in two major areas: counseling through local and statewide inservice programs, and curriculum through a K-12 program of occupational information, orientation, and exploration.
