Elkhart Area Career Center, IN.
The Elkhart Career Education Planning Program (ELCEP), a K-12 component of Indiana's career education effort, and its first three years of operation are described in the document. A general discussion of the definition of career education, program goals, administration, funding, and facilities provides background material on the program. Several projects are discussed, including: a model school; the development of a graduate course in the techniques of career education, in conjunction with Indiana University at South Bend; the screening of commercial products for applicability to the program; the development of the ELCEP library and mobile unit; recruitment of teachers for career education courses; and, consultation services and information on career education for the Elkhart school district. Administrative offices are housed at the Elkhart Area Career Center, and facilities enable field trips, workshops, the graduate course, and the resource library to be available to community schools. School projects developed by teachers in conjunction with ELCEP are discussed, and future goals cited for career education development. Suggestions for interviewing a resource person and a field trip check list are included. (LH)
