Career Education Implementation Guide. (One Part of Wisconsin's Inservice Training Packages).
Wisconsin State Dept. of Public Instruction, Madison.
As a part of the training project which was to demonstrate the most effective methods and techniques for training school staff in the infusion of career education into the curriculum, this guide provides procedures which will enable educators, parents, community representatives, and students to collaborate in developing comprehensive career education programs for local education agencies. Seven criteria were used to select five school districts to receive technical assistance and inservice training in career education. Following a description of the project and the career education implementation flow chart and model, the process of implementation is presented in fourteen steps: (1) orientation and organization, (2) needs assessment, (3) organization of a career education cadre, (4) development of a community collaborative network, (5) development of a local plan for career education, (6) development of an inservice program, (7) development of a comprehensive career guidance program, (8) definition of the local infusion process, (9) implementation of a career education in kindergarten through adult education, (10) establishment of a career education resource center, (11) provision of career exploration opportunities, (12) evaluation of the career education program, (13) report on the program evaluation, and (14) refinement and repeating of the cycle. Appendixes include a list of project activities, aids to implementation, guidelines for using community resources, a staff involvement survey, and an abstract of the Wisconsin state plan for career education.
