South Burlington Vermont Career Education Project. Final Financial Status Report and Project Performance Report; Final Evaluation Report, Final Report, January 30, 1979 through June 30, 1979.
South Burlington School District, VT.
This document contains the (1) final status report and project performance report and (2) final evaluation report of a career education project to develop a demonstration model to train school personnel to infuse career education into the curriculum. The first report outlines objectives and major activities involving parents, higher education, and the community. Activities described include workshops, introducing core teachers to career education, core teachers acting as models and resources to assist others to infuse career education, home meetings to help parents become active career education facilitators, project extension as a model for preservice training in area colleges, meetings between staff and community representatives to discuss career experiences, and development of a five-year career education plan for the South Burlington School District (Vermont). The evaluation report is organized according to project objectives with a comparison of pre and post results from interviews, instruments, and observations of core teachers and students and control groups. These results are reported: teacher attitudes and knowledge about career education significantly changed in a positive direction, a wide range of community resources were identified to facilitate career education implementation, career education seminars held in colleges caused significant change in knowledge of college students, and high school students demonstrated exceptional scores in the Career Maturity Inventory.
