Evaluation of the Guided Occupational Orientation-Training and Job Placement Project Syracuse City School District.
Holder, Harold D.; And Others
The report provides a summary of the independent, third party evaluation of the 1972-73 funding year of the Guided Occupational Orientation Project of the Syracuse City School District. A systems approach to evaluation was utilized in this effort. The funded project involved all three grade populations--elementary, junior high school, and senior high school. Each major grade grouping had a distinct focus: (1) elementary--career awareness, (2) junior high school--career orientation and exploration, and (3) senior high school--job training and placement. Each group goal was supported by separate grade level goals. The variables for each target group--students, parents, and industry--are described in terms of the actual effect of the program to date. In assessing the overall impact of the project, the major findings were: (1) career awareness is increasing generally for students in grades five through nine; (2) attitudes are not being affected, therefore, attitudinal concepts would be discarded; and (3) in grades 10-12, the occupational learning centers are having the desired impact on the target population.
