Implementing Career Education. An Administrator's Handbook.
California State Dept. of Education, Sacramento. Vocational Education Services.
Utilizing the findings of the research and development activities conducted by California's Career Education Task Force at 36 school district demonstration sites to develop prototype career education models in grades K-12 and adult classes, this handbook was developed to provide administrators with procedures for the infusion of career education into an ongoing school program. Following a brief introduction to career education, five components of career education program infusion are covered: (1) Planning a Career Education Program (a systems approach to implementing career education, and developing the implementation plan which involves developing a rationale for change, determining subject and grade level involvement, developing goals and objectives, determining staff development needs, planning a staff development program, identifying curriculum areas that require revision, providing for resource materials, determining administrative procedures, obtaining and allocating resources, developing a time chart, determining assessment procedures, and ensuring program continuance and growth); (2) Organizing the Program (selecting a manager, establishing task forces and an advisory committee, selecting consultants, and establishing communications channels); (3) Obtaining Resources for the Program (budget categories and sources for funding and other resources); (4) Implementing the Program (getting started, staff development considerations, and materials development); and (5) Evaluating the Program (obtaining feedback, and designing the components for evaluating program management, staff development, materials development, selection and use of materials, implementation, and instrumentation).
