Process Model for Developing a Multi-District Cooperative Career Education Program.
Oregon State Dept. of Education, Salem.
The experiences of the Malheur County, Oregon, cooperative, multi-district career education project, funded under Title Three of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, formed the basis for the development of the guide. Two assumptions are basic to the establishment of a career-oriented, multi-district program: (1) that such a curriculum will help students realize their career aspirations, and (2) that cooperation between school districts will result in a program with sufficient resources to offer a curriculum with both breadth and depth. Essential steps in program development are the assessment of students' interests and needs, and the assessment of each party's readiness to join a cooperative program. A readiness assessment instrument is offered, based on 15 factors identified as critical to the success of the undertaking. The planning stage involves consideration of program objectives, structural organization, roles and responsibilities, and staff development. Operational tasks should be considered in terms of both the scheduling of and responsibility for specific tasks. Evaluation should be both summative and formative and should consider aims, responsibilities, and methods. Appended materials include references for career education planning published in Oregon, pilot programs in Oregon, a vocational inventory, an interest survey, and items relating to the Malheur County program.
