Training K-12 Administrators for Career Education.
Wisconsin State Dept. of Public Instruction, Madison.
Based on the practical training experience of sixteen school districts and two universities which comprise the Wisconsin Career Education Consortium, this report presents training strategies for training superintendents, directors of instruction and/or supervisors of curriculum development, building principals and assistant principals, local vocational education coordinators, career education coordinators, and other elementary secondary school administrators. Five training objectives were formulated from a needs assessment: (1) promote administrative understanding of and commitment to career education, (2) develop administrative skills for effecting change and promoting career education, (3) enable school administrators to outline specific leadership roles, (4) develop skills necessary to plan and manage a comprehensive career education program, and (5) develop skills which will help school administrators to function as links between school and community in the delivery of career education to students. For each training objective specific training strategies are discussed. A model career education training/retraining program for school administrators consisting of a twenty-four cassette tape presentation is described in the appendixes. (LRA)
