Iowa State Dept. of Public Instruction, Des Moines. Div. of Career Education.
The guidelines for planning career education programs revolve around gathering valid and comprehensive data. The career education planning model involves determining people's needs, available resources, and alternatives; establishing policies and practices; writing objectives and plans; and evaluating the results. The document, in outline form, discusses the nine items involved in planning: (1) determining human and economic needs of an area (using sources providing demographic data; employment and welfare statistics; student and labor data; and needs related to social adjustment, location, dropouts, and poor school achievers); (2) ascertaining current resources; (3) comparing the needs profile with the resource inventory to determine the extent to which needs are being met; (4) resources needed to fulfill unmet needs; (5) identifying possible alternatives; (6) identifying constraints; (7) establishing objectives; (8) developing short- and long-range plans; and (9) developing a comprehensive evaluation system.
