Public Systems, Inc., Huntsville, AL.
The report describes the accomplishments of the Career Opportunities Program (COP) from its initiation through March 1, 1975. The program trained individuals from low-income backgrounds for new careers in schools serving children from low-income families. Based on data from 36 of 132 projects (27.8 percent), the report, in four major sections, focuses on overall characteristics of program process development and indicates the extent to which individuals participated in and benefited from the program. Section 1 presents an overall view of the participants, participant accomplishments, and other participating elements. Section 2 is a description of the extent to which major COP processes (Career Lattice, Work Study, COP Council, and Recruitment) have been developed. The summary tables and text of section 2 present each process, the development objectives associated with each process, performance objectives relating to each development objective, and the performance criteria/measurements employed to assess the extent to which performance objectives were attained. Section 3 is a composite analysis of the cost-benefit of the program. Section 4 (179 pages) contains the data and information employed in compiling the report. (Author/MS)
