Demonstration Senior High Schools: A Career Education Consortium Effort Involving Broward, Orange, and Pinellas Counties. Final Report.
Florida State Dept. of Education, Tallahassee.
Career education demonstration programs were set up in schools in a three county consortium effort in Florida. Activities were based on an operational model incorporating eight elements--career, economic, and educational awareness; subject area skills; self awareness; decision making; attitudes and appreciation; and employability skills. The program was designed to provide (1) career awareness and exploration experiences for grades 9-12; (2) salable skills experiences for eleventh and twelfth grade students and a salable skills-oriented program for possible dropouts; (3) guidance and counseling; (4) ways of using school and community resources to full advantage; and (5) placement and follow-up services. Student achievement was evaluated via pre- and posttesting. Programs were expanded and shared with other schools in the counties; other program components were added, including expansion of guidance and counseling to include a teacher advisory system, staff training for future use of the Life Career Development System, increased use of community resources, implementation of a community-based EBCE (Experience-Based Career Education) model, and development of a model centralized resource information system. Visits to the schools were encouraged. (Relevant evaluation forms and project documentation are appended.) (CP)
