Statewide Leadership in Implementing Career Education. A Final Project Performance Report, August 20, 1977-August 19, 1978.
Jesser, David L.
A project conducted by the Council of Chief State School Officers was designed to meet the following objectives: (1) to maintain, develop, and further improve the communication system so that essential information relating to career education might be more effectively communicated between and among the states and extra-state jurisdictions and federal agencies, and national organizations; and (2) to develop and operate a delivery system that will provide professional growth opportunities and technical assistance for state directors/coordinators of career education. Several committees and task forces were organized to provide leadership and guidance in carrying out the project objectives. Dissemination activities included a newsletter, teleconferences, and special bulletins. Throughout the project liaison activities were maintained with appropriate federal agencies and national organizations. A staff development training session, "Planning to Implement Career Education," was conducted and evaluated (see CE 024 348). Only two problems were identified: (1) a delay in receiving the grant award for the project; and (2) inability (because of travel restrictions or lack of funds) of state directors/coordinators to attend some of the meetings and conferences. However, it was noted that these problems did not have a major impact on the project objectives. (Appendix B materials are available as separate documents--see Note). (BM)
