Project CAST. An Adventure in the World of Work.
Charles County Board of Education, La Plata, MD.
Project CAST serves educationally handicapped students, ages 14-21, who are receiving special education services for more than half of their school day. The program focuses upon the students' development of skills necessary to foster independent living, wise career decision-making, and successful entry into the world of work. The model uses a carefully designed integration of community and school-based developmental learning experiences. CAST is a four year, four-phase program which offers subject area course credits required for graduation. Students generally enter the program in the ninth grade in Phase I and end the program with Phase IV upon completion of high school. Phases I through IV involve career awareness, career exploration, career investigation, and on-the-job training/work study. Concluding this booklet is a list of available Project CAST items. (JH)
