Student Services. Program Entry/Exit, Student Records, Guidance. Handbooks for Experience-Based Career Education.
Anderson, Nancy; And Others
This is one of a set of five handbooks compiled by the Northwest Regional Educational Laboratory which describes the processes for planning and operating a total Experience-Based Career Education (EBCE) program. Processes and material are those developed by the original EBCE model--Community Experiences in Career Education or (CE)2. The area of operations to which this handbook is devoted is student services. Program Entry/Exit, the first of three sections, details alternatives for student enrollment and orientation. Topics include student recruitment and selection, transfer into and out of the program, and program completion. Student Records covers procedures and considerations for collecting, recording, interpreting, and reporting information on student progress. Sample forms, including a student credential are displayed. Section 3, Guidance, concerns services, processes, and interactions that help students understand and benefit from individual experiences. It discusses program year action zones, student accountability system, zone progress meetings, zone de-briefings, and referral to outside agencies. Each section has three basic parts: (1) preview, including definition of the EBCE element discussed, purposes and underlying assumptions of that element, and people involved in delivering it; (2) steps to follow; and (3) narrative section explaining process behind each step. Extensive appendixes contain supplementary materials; an index to all the handbooks is also provided. (YLB)
