Guide for Implementing Career Education.
Nelson, Richard E.
The guide provides background information and suggested procedures to assist school administrators in the planning and implementation of career education in a local school district. Key decision-making bodies are necessary to implement an effective career education program (school boards superintendent, principals, instructional staff, counselors, and the community), and suggested activities and considerations for each of them are presented. Career education may be implemented with the use of three primary committee structures: (1) the steering committee, with district wide representation, provides an organizational structure that is responsive to community needs; (2) the building committee for each school building provides plans for the inservice training program; and (3) the community advisory committee provides the school system with access to community resources. The possibility of a communications program for promoting career education is discussed with reference to the public to be reached and types of media and communication systems. A reference list, a bibliography, and a list of school districts in Missouri with special projects in career education are included. (Author/EC)
