The accounting cluster demonstration project conducted at Aloha High School in the Beaverton, Oregon, school district developed a model curriculum for high school accounting. The curriculum is based on interviews with professionals in the accounting field and emphasizes the use of computers. It is suitable for use with special needs students as well as regular vocational education students. This guide was created to help persons who adopt the accounting cluster curriculum to understand the background of the curriculum and to adapt it to the needs of their schools. Following an introduction to the program, sections II through VIII of the guide provide the following information: selecting a base for program improvement, identifying curriculum content, developing the curriculum, developing the delivery system, field testing curriculum and delivery systems, establishing curriculum and delivery systems, and disseminating products.
