A program was developed to facilitate career decision-making capabilities in a K-12 experience-based career education (EBCE) program by expanding students' self-awareness and occupational and curricular awareness. During its second year, the program implemented occupational and career components in K-12 by providing teaching kits, learning activities, visits to the Area Vocational Center, guidance sessions, and placing students in exploration experiences. Evaluation was conducted by a third party and focused on the sophomore and junior EBCE program. To measure career education outcomes for participating students, the Career Orientation Battery was administered to eighty-two EBCE students and sixty-nine comparison students. The results showed no significant differences between the two groups. Evaluation questionnaires were filled out by students, parents, site coordinators, teachers, counselors, and administrators. Their perceptions strongly suggest that the program is successful in assisting students in clarifying and/or identifying their occupational interests by providing EBCE orientation sessions for staff development and two "Operation: Staff Exploration Experience (SEE)" sessions to provide more information to staff about EBCE activities. (The appendixes include publicity articles, evaluation forms, and agendas for staff development sessions.) (ELG)
