Humacao School District Research and Development Project in Career Education. Final Report.
Cruz, Ramon A.
This project was developed from an overall need in Humacao, Puerto Rico, for an occupation information program at all levels of the educational system to provide more knowledge about the new employment opportunities resulting from Humacao's changing labor market. Since prior to project implementation, schools were characterized by no activities related to career awareness experiences, very limited guidance and counseling services and placement services (for junior and senior high levels), and no formal teaching-learning program about the world of work, specific project goals were to (1) develop and implement a program at the elementary school level designed to increase awareness of students in terms of the broad range of options open to them in the world of work, (2) improve the guidance and counseling services to all grade levels, (3) improve career orientation and exploratory experiences at the junior high level, and (4) establish a placement service to insure the placement of all exiting students in either a job, a postsecondary occupational program, or a baccalaureate program. Emphasis was also placed on inservice training for teachers, counselors, and directors from the 11 participant schools. The project was reported successful in reaching objectives. There was an increased awareness of the importance of career education, and improved guidance and counseling services at all levels. The document contains a summary of the report, body of the report, and third party evaluations. Tables list schools served by zone, level, and enrollment during the years of the projects. Appendixes (65 pages) outline activities carried out at the elementary, junior, and senior high school levels and at the supervisory level. (TA)
