Designed to assist local colleges/districts in assessing their existing home economics program, and in developing curricula that respond to the changing needs of students, communities, and the workforce, this plan presents the program guidelines of the California Community Colleges (CCCs). Introductory material describes the history of the program plan, its organization and dissemination, philosophical and fiscal support, the taxonomy of home economics programs and the mission and goals of career-vocational education and home economics in California. Each of next six sections provides a mission statement; a review of career opportunities; a description of the curriculum; descriptions of courses and core components; procedures for evaluation, assessment, and accountability; and resources. The sections cover the following home economics areas: (1) Fashion (e.g., merchandising, design/production, and apparel/textiles); (2) Interiors (e.g., environment, design, and merchandising); (3) Life Management (e.g., financial management, resource management, and consumer affairs); (4) Lifespan (e.g., child development, family studies, and gerontology); and (5) Nutrition and Food (e.g., food service management, dietetic technician training, and chef education). Following an overview of the state's articulation efforts, which includes a review of the California Articulation Number system, the final section describes the CCCs computer bulletin board, Info-Net. Appendixes list planning committee and task force members, and a glossary of terms. The Directory of Professional and Trade Organizations and Directory of Home Economics and Related Program Areas and Instructional Staff are attached. (MAB)
