The Blue Hills Model; A Collaborative Experiment in Career Development. Volume 1--The Satellite Plan.
Blue Hills Regional Career Education Center, Canton, MA.
The document traces the development of one specific model, the Blue Hills Regional Technical Education Center, a regional school serving the specific occupational and career educational needs of high schools in seven suburban communities, located in Canton, Massachusetts. It also outlines the organizational structure, the program philosophy, and the exploratory cluster concept, which provides for students not yet ready to make a commitment to either vocational education or college preparation. Occupational guidance devices, program content, the current status of the program, projected plans, and conclusions are offered. Summarizing the benefits to member communities, the document concludes that the model has provided a practical framework for real cooperation between academic and vocational-technical educators, and may provide the basis for a new funding design for occupational education in Massachusetts.
