A Proposal for Demonstration of the Training and Re-Training of Education Decision-Makers for Conducting Career Education Programs. Final Report, October 1, 1978-January 31, 1980.
National School Boards Association, Washington, DC.
This report discusses the third year of a career education project that intended to aid school districts in establishing a collaborative relationship with business, labor, industry, and professional groups within the community and in obtaining permanent local financing of career education programs and to create a cadre of career education consultants nationwide. It begins by summarizing two other National School Boards Association-sponsored career education projects. These third-year activities are then discussed: study of financing career education in local school districts, training seminars, and development of manuals on financing and program implementation and a film, The Partnership in Career Education. The 18-page report is supplemented by four exhibits. One provides the table of contents of Career Education: Support in Policy, a sample policy manual developed by a previous project. A second exhibit is the report of the national study of financing career education by local school districts. The survey instrument is included as a third exhibit. The final exhibit is the approximately 300-page reference manual, Strategies for Incorporating Programmatic Efforts into a District--Using Career Education as the Program Example (project exhibit F), which was designed to assist school board members, administrators, and school district staff in implementing a program at minimal cost. It contains a training module for use in a training situation intended to help individuals enter the reference manual. (YLB)
