South Dakota Career Education: Statewide Implementation of K-14 Project of Career Education, Occupational Counseling, and Bridging the Gap Between School and Work. First Interim Report.
South Dakota Career Education Project, Watertown.
The three year Career Education Program in South Dakota has two major objectives to be accomplished on a Statewide basis: (1) to help all public and private schools in South Dakota implement career education programs, and (2) to provide every student in the State an opportunity to develop self-awareness, favorable work attitudes, and career decision making skills. Outlined are the problem area which generated the program, the program goals and objectives, the procedures followed, and the accomplishment of the project in the areas of: elementary and secondary curriculum guides, a guidance component, information dissemination, inservice workshops, teacher education programs, advisory committees, conferences and visitations, and bibliography development. The detailed independent evaluation of the first year of the program presents assessments of: the progress of the project in its effort to establish a framework for the development of a Statewide program; the impact of workshop and training programs in providing the 50 target schools with the expertise to implement career development models, curricula, and materials; and the guidance component.
