Exemplary Project in Career Education in South Carolina Region V. Final Report. July 1, 1970-June 30, 1973.
South Carolina Region 5 Educational Services Center, Lancaster.
The Exemplary Project in Career Education was designed to stimulate the development of specific activities and programs in career education which would assist students in developing self-concepts and good attitudes while expanding career knowledge and job skills in South Carolina school districts. An administrative staff from the Region Five Educational Services Center in Lancaster supervised the project currently operational in Chesterfield, Fairfield, and Kershaw Counties. Lancaster County dropped out the second year. Feeder systems were used in each of the counties. There were five components to the program (elementary career orientation, work experience, interdisciplinary program, intensive training, and placement and followup) which provided the framework for the K-12 career education program, each with its own goals. Two of the components were implemented in each district the first year; all five were implemented the second year. During this time, extensive inservice training (workshops, orientation conferences, and visitations) was conducted for teachers, administrators, and members of the community. Continuous evaluation was conducted by third parties. The project was judged to be successful in meeting its objectives, with each county program evaluated in a 40-page report included as one of four appendixes. (AG)
