An Occupational Vocational-Education Model for the State of Delaware. Final Report.
Delaware State Board for Vocational Education, Milford.
The goals of the program were to create a meaningful cooperative effort between the Kent County Vocational-Technical School District and the Milford School District and to establish a system to serve as a Statewide model. The first year was devoted to planning; implementation began in 1971. The data collected indicate that results produced were: (1) increased student interest in job preparation, (2) decreased number of dropouts, (3) additional jobs for students in job placement services, (4) favorable response to elementary career education programs from teachers, children, and parents, (5) expanded opportunities for middle and high school students to explore occupations, and (6) increasingly receptive attitude toward career education by staff and faculty. Another result was State funding of a career guidance and placement coordinator for each school district in the State. The project staff worked with ten of the 26 districts by providing information, curriculum materials, and general assistance for career education program planning. Documents developed and disseminated as a result of the project are a bibliography, learning units, program implementation, and data gathering instrumentation. (CE 000 706-9, 737) (MS)
