Career Education Staff Development Project, 1978-1979. Final Project Report.
Detroit Public Schools, MI.
A project was undertaken to (1) develop a prototype for installing career education in two regions of the Detroit Public Schools through staff development activities, (2) monitor the involvement level in local schools in these regions, and (3) assist each school on an ongoing basis to plan for effective career education implementation. The first stage of the project consisted of initial training of a working cadre in each school; orienting and training school administrators, parents, and community members; and creating an extensive career materials center. The second phase involved utilization of the trained personnel and simultaneous provision of inservice training to all available teaching and administrative staff. The project was successful both in terms of number of people trained and participating and in terms of products and their innovative use. Over 2000 teachers and 75 administrators from fifty-nine schools participated in the program, and hundreds of infusion exercises and materials were locally developed. The project also resulted in considerable diffusion benefits to other regions and surrounding school districts. An appendix comprising two thirds of the report provides inservice participation figures and memoranda outlining regional project accomplishments. (MN)
