This description of career education activities in Ontario-Montclair School District (California), was prepared as part of a study conducted to identify evaluated, exemplary career education activities which represent the best of the current career education programs and practices referred to in Public Law 93-380. (See CE 018 212 for the final report of this study.) This document describes one of the ten projects that were selected from among 250 projects submitted. It presents one locale's way of successfully implementing a career education activity, the results of which are educationally significant. Each of the ten projects are reported in a similar format, including the following descriptions: project overview; program development; materials and activities; parent and community involvement; staffing and management; costs; evidence of effectiveness; and conclusions. In this report of the Matching Attitudes and Talents to Career Horizons (MATCH) project, the ultimate goal is stated as follows: to infuse a career education component into the regular K-8 curriculum. (Goals were formulated in ten areas of career education, including career awareness, consumer competencies, career planning, and decision making.) The primary subjects are identified as K-8 students from a heterogeneous community of whites, latinos, and blacks and the evaluation design is described as a pre- and posttest on intact treatment and control classes using four project-developed instruments.
