A Comprehensive Vocational Education Program for Career Development in Grades K-14. Final Report.
Pinellas County District School Board, Clearwater, FL.
The Comprehensive Vocational Education Program for Career Development (K-14) in Pinellas County was implemented in nine pilot schools in which the project's goals were designed to bring together already operating components of career education in the county. A concerted effort was made to identify and integrate effective elements of other programs and projects (academic and vocational) to build a composite, articulated program of career education. The document discusses in detail such varied aspects of the programs as: the project summary; background information; a definition of the problem; an overview of the Pinellas County Comprehensive Career Education Project (goals and objectives, procedures, operational goals, expected outcomes, and component reports); a summary of inservice data; placement and followup procedures; the degree of community, committee, and university involvement; a calendar of critical incidents; a synopsis of site visits by key personnel; project costs; attitudes toward new roles of counselor and occupational specialist; a process diary; parent and staff attitudes toward career education; an external evaluator's reports of visitations; a product evaluation of the eight career education elements; an explanation of the Pontiac, Michigan research design; and a summary of the project's findings, conclusions, and recommendations.
