Syracuse City School District, NY.
The Guided Occupational Orientation Program was developed to help students make realistic plans and decisions about future career preparation, largely by exposing them to extensive study of careers and their prerequisites. The summary of the project report covers the goals, objectives, procedures, accomplishments, evaluation, conclusions, and recommendations. Goals and objectives are enumerated for grades 5-7. The description of the general project design and procedures covers elementary, junior high, and secondary schools. Forty-eight procedures for the program are included describing the procedure or specifying its purpose, student population, instructional staff, methods/techniques, materials, instruments, and a procedural update. This section comprises the main portion of the document. Common procedures for the three levels were: establishment of criteria for staff selection, orientation meetings for staffs, consultant assistance, and community contacts. The results and accomplishments for the project are itemized by each year and by educational level. The evaluation includes three areas: of project management, of components of three levels, and by a third party evaluator. The conclusions and recommendations discuss securing community and staff support to ensure success, curriculum development, and publicity. An 11-item selected bibliography completes the documents.
