Creating Career Cluster Programs: A Guide for Oregon High Schools.
Oregon State Dept. of Education, Salem. Career and Vocational Education Section.
The guide was intended to provide the information needed to implement or improve an 11th and 12th grade career education cluster program. The authors suggest that the guide will be most useful in schools where a long-range plan for career education has been prepared and adopted by the local board of education, and where it has been decided to organize the program around occupational clusters. The guide is divided into two parts and covers the phases and elements of program implementation. Part 1, six pages in length, outlines steps for implementing each of 11 program elements, such as advisory committees, personnel, and finance. Part 2 recounts the steps related to advisory committees, personnel, curriculum, work experience, facilities and equipment, youth organizations, and articulation for each of three occupational clusters. The clusters are: agriculture, accounting, clerical, construction, diversified occupations, electrical, food service, forest products, health, industrial mechanics, marketing, metals, and steno-secretarial.
