Bridgeport Public Schools, CT.
The final report of the Bridgeport Career Education Project covers the period from August 1, 1971 to August 31, 1974. The project has as its major goal the development of a comprehensive career education and development program beginning at the elementary level and continuing through high school. The initial phase of the project centered on informing principals, counselors, and teachers of participating schools about the overall project objectives. This effort was accomplished by a workshop designed for this purpose. Another workshop was conducted for developing curriculum guidelines and presenting information related to sources of occupational information for teacher use. The development and implementation of a career education materials center followed. Inservice training sessions were conducted on the effective use of the occupational materials. Efforts to involve the community as a whole in the career education program were also undertaken. The major conclusion of the report is that the support for career education concepts in Bridgeport has been very favorable. (VA)
