New York State Consortium for Career Education. Career Education Program, July 1, 1975-June 30, 1976. Project Performance Report, Volume 1.
New York State Education Dept., Albany.
This first volume of a two-volume report of a New York State consortium for career education contains the dissemination report and project performance and evaluation reports from two of seven component districts, Allegany Board of Cooperative Educational Services and East Aurora Union Free School District. (Volume 2 contains reports from the remaining five.) The dissemination report provides an audit and analysis of six objectives, including a management component, thirteen regional workshops, a series of career education teacher inservice workshops, management training programs for state department staff, communication linkages, and impact studies. The project performance reports describe the activities carried out by the component districts. (The major focus of these activities was to achieve incremental growth in services to more students and teachers, better/broader offerings for infusion into ongoing programs, increased use of appropriate community resources and occupational educational programs, and improved articulation with postsecondary employment and educational programs.) The evaluation reports present the findings of the third-party evaluator, Policy Studies in Education (PSE). Each report discusses the objectives measured by PSE, the project director's plan for accomplishing them, and PSE's matching plan to assess project accomplishments. (The consortium activity resulted in incremental growth of career education in each district.) (BM)
