Summarizing the progress of Project Green River Opportunities for Work (Project GROW), the document reviews the study's background and the activities resulting from a third party evaluation by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools. Objectives based on the evaluation and recommendations included: (1) development of an articulated and developmental career education program, kindergarten through postsecondary, (2) organization of a regional materials center; and (3) revision of the occupational testing program for high school students. Matrix development and the Vocational Information for Education and Work Program (VIEW) are described, and a career education conference report is included and evaluated. The external evaluation report is presented in its entirety. The evaluators' conclusion was that the project represented exemplary innovative progress in its two and a half years of operation.
