The Dilenowisco Four I's Project: "Career Education for Norton City Schools."
Norton City School Board, VA.
The DILENOWISCO Educational Cooperative designed the Four I's Project (intervention, introduction, investigation, and involvement) and the K-12 Career Education Program for Norton City in an effort to assist in solving some of the educational problems existing in this isolated central Appalachian area of Virginia. The two projects are discussed extensively in both summary and body reports in terms of: program objectives; procedures; evaluation methods; problems; evaluation instruments; project results and accomplishments; a third party evaluation; conclusions, implications, and recommendations; information dissemination; and a geographical description of the area served by the projects. The Four I's Project was designed to serve older students who were potential dropouts from the school districts of Dickenson and Wise Counties. The K-12 Career Education Project was designed to serve all the children in the Norton City Schools with the ultimate objective of leading seniors toward realistic career plans and self concepts. Both projects were considered to be successful and therefore will be continued. Achievements are reported in the areas of: guidance, work placement programs, changes in self-concept, changed teacher attitudes, parental awareness, and occupational knowledge. (BP)
