VIGOR and Beyond: A Statement on Career Education.
David Douglas Public Schools, Portland, OR.
The pamphlet provides an overview of Project VIGOR, Oregon's Exemplary Career Education Program (1970-73). The program design includes career awareness in grades K-6, career and self-exploration in grades 7-10, occupational preparation in grades 11-12, and occupational specialization at the postsecondary level. Teachers from all grade levels were involved in workshops and inservice programs to implement the program. Some main objectives were to proide more educational experiences and resources outside of the classroom and to develop strong lines of communication and coordination at all instructional levels. The school district is assuming the cost of continuing the Federal program and is placing a director of career education in charge of all career education programs in the district. (EA)
