During the course of the project, representatives from each participating school participated in inservice training and collaborated to develop a local education agency (LEA) sequence of courses, task list, and course syllabus for a course titled "Introduction to Computers." (Appended are lists of tech prep planning committee members and the advisory administrative team, the articulation agreement, the sequence of courses in the tech prep program, a task list and syllabus for the introduction to computers course, an information processing update, a news release, project information, and a financial report.)
