New York State Consortium for Career Education. Career Education Program, July 1, 1975-June 30, 1976. Project Performance Report, Volume 2.
New York State Education Dept., Albany.
This second volume of a two-volume report of a New York State consortium for career education contains project performance and evaluation reports from five of seven component districts: Erie Board of Cooperative Educational Services (BOCES); Orleans-Niagara BOCES; Rockland BOCES; three rural districts; and the Syracuse City School District. (Volume 1 contains the reports from the remaining two component districts and a dissemination report.) 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 evaluation report contains a discussion of 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 and a number of specific learnings relative to managing such a project from the state level; but insufficient interaction among the Consortium components was indicated.)
