An Exemplary Program for Occupational Preparation: Final Report.
Young, William G.
Covering the time period from September 1970 to July 1973, the final report reviews the overall goals, activities, and accomplishments of a pilot project in the New Orleans public schools to provide the exemplary program for occupational preparation (EPOP) for children of the inner city area. At the beginning of the third program year, technical assistance was employed to develop a comprehensive evaluation design incorporating product and process objectives. The resulting document enabled the EPOP staff to clearly communicate its objectives and delineate responsibilities throughout the program. Procedures for monitoring activities and data collection enhanced the level of program operations. Many resources focused on classroom activities to develop occupational awareness. Exploratory, skill, and semi-skill training at the secondary level were made available to students to meet the basic goals of the program. (Author/MU)
