Develop a State Plan for Career Education. Final Report, July 1, 1976 to June 30, 1977.
Utah State Board of Education, Salt Lake City.
A draft for a state plan for career education was developed in Utah. To provide the necessary information on which to base such a plan, career education needs assessments were conducted of students on the elementary and secondary school levels. Eight questionnaires were also developed and administered for an institutional needs assessment. The areas focused on in this assessment were the five major areas to be considered in the state plan: curriculum, training, guidance and counseling, community, and planning and evaluation. The questionnaires were sent to district personnel, secondary school teachers and principals, career education coordinators, elementary school teachers and principals, presidents of the PTA, and 500 businesses. Also sent to every elementary and secondary school were checklists to take an inventory of career education materials. A Career Education Conceptualizers and Planners Committee met to consider the needs identified by these assessments and to prioritize them for each of the five areas of the state plan. The committee also established one- and five-year objectives and, with the assistance of the State Career Education Advisory Council, developed a draft of the state plan. (The appendixes contain membership lists for the council and committee; summaries of the needs assessments and the questionnaires and checklists used; and the draft state plan with its supporting attachments.)
