Tech Prep II: Implementation Final Report.
Brown, Jane A.
This document contains the final progress report on a tech prep implementation project and the Work Force Challenge 2000 Report developed during the project. The final report lists these major accomplishments: approximately 1,500 educators in grades K-12 were provided information concerning future global issues in the work force and the effects in the Danville, Illinois, area; one part of Work Force Challenge 2000 was brought to closure with development of the final report; a summer shadowing/internship program was implemented through an area high school; and a summer integration project offered a combined Technology Orientation and English course. Materials developed by and used in the project are appended. The Workforce Challenge 2000 Report begins with an executive summary that describes efforts of the diverse sectors of the Danville community to plan and implement a program to prepare and maintain a qualified, adaptable work force for Vermilion County and the area that Danville Area Community College serves. Local work force concerns that were identified are listed. The body of the report lists five goals to address these concerns along with objectives and related tasks to achieve them. Appendixes include a summary of need for Workforce Challenge 2000; human resources survey results; information from the Department of Labor study, "What Work Requires of Schools"; and implementation organization and strategies for Workforce Challenge 2000.
