For the 1973-74 school year the California Career Education Task Force decided that expanded activities would be most productively developed at six previously funded sites plus two additional sites. Since the eight project sites differed in geographic location, socioeconomic level, size, ethnic composition, and school organizational pattern, a wide range of promising career education practices evolved that may be useful in other communities and educational settings. Although project sites implemented a variety of activities, staff inservice training and curriculum development were activities common to all. Of the 800 curriculum products developed, more than 500 were validated for use by nonproject sites. The external evaluation conducted by Educational Testing Service reveals that the process objectives were carried out effectively at each site. Supplementary funds enabled each project site to solicit and acquire a long range commitment to career education by local boards and administration. Among those sites that differed in size and geographical location, the most difficulty in implementation was experienced by small school districts and at the secondary education level. The programs in the eight different sites are described individually and in detail (Camino Union Elementary School District, Covina-Valley Unified School District, Los Angeles Unified School District, Richmond Unified School District, Sacramento City Unified School District, San Diego County Office of Education, Santa Barbara City Elementary and High School District, Sanoma County Office of Education, and State Level Coordination and Dissemination). Administrative, guidance, and instructional implications derived from the project by the Task Force are outlined along with specific recommendations to the State Department of Education. (MF)
