Education for Technology Employment. Creating a Desirable Future--High Technology Education. Final Report 1983-84.
Will County Education Service Region, Joliet, IL.
Seven area high school districts, two area vocational centers, and Joliet Community College (JCC) voluntarily joined together to develop a regional planning statement regarding objectives for a collaborative and coordinated high technology education program. As a part of this project, four high schools are working together with JCC to develop and implement an articulated computer-aided drafting curriculum. During the course of the project, monthly meetings were held with the chief vocational administrators in the community college district area. Included among the major accomplishments of the plan were the submission and approval of a regional quality assistance plan and a common set of quality indicators by all of the participating vocational administrators. As a result of the project, all of the vocational educational staff in Plainfield, Illinois, have been involved in an in-service program and in curriculum development on the subject of technological change and its impact on the work force. The collaborative and cooperative efforts of the school districts that have shared their resources and expertise during the project have resulted in a more effective and efficient delivery of employment education and in improved articulation among schools in the region.
