Region 10 Tech Prep Consortium. Final Evaluation Report.
Beilke, Jayne; Dacey, Vickie
The Tech Prep Region 10 Consortium in Indiana was formed to develop and expand the use of the Tech Prep model adopted by the state to all educational institutions in the region. Involving collaboration among postsecondary institutions, secondary schools, and business and industry within state regions, the consortium design involved three phases: an initial year of planning and development, a second year focusing on establishing curriculum for secondary education, and a final implementation phase. Evaluation of the first phase showed that although the planned 8-month time frame was shortened to 4 months, many of the project's goals were accomplished. Some of the results of evaluation were the following: (1) all secondary schools in Region 10 received an orientation to Tech Prep, site members were identified, and their names entered into a database; (2) six training sessions for teachers and administrators in the region were held, resulting in the dissemination of curriculum and practical information and the development of networks; (3) most teachers and administrators who attended the sessions found them helpful, according to questionnaires returned by participants; and (4) almost all consortium members were supportive of Tech Prep and wished to continue as site team members or coordinators after the first year. (Four appendixes to the report include objectives and a timeline for the planning phase, a session evaluation form, and site team questionnaires. Tables include an organizational chart, enrollment data for consortium schools, and ratings of how goals were met by site team members.) (KC)
