A project was conducted to (1) determine how to install comprehensive career education programs on a districtwide basis when development and field testing have been completed, and (2) determine how to transport effective career education programs from school districts that have them to school districts that need them. Project objectives were met through the involvement of nine school districts in the Alliance of Career and Vocational Education. The National Center for Research in Vocational Education staff provided training for career education directors and career education curriculum materials for teachers to facilitate program implementation in the nine districts. As a result of project activities, it was found that four major factors influenced the transportability and installation of Alliance programs: (1) goal and model congruence, (2) cost, (3) ease of installation, and (4) staff and community involvement. Evaluation data indicated that the career education programs were received equally well by staff and students in the five ongoing districts and four new districts. (LRA)
