National Center for Research in Vocational Education, Berkeley, CA.
This document outlines the purposes and main activities of a 2-week national institute held in July 1993 in Berkeley, California. Ten teams of vocational and academic educators (125 high school and community college teachers, counselors, and administrators) from 10 major metropolitan areas were selected through a competitive application process to participate in the institute. The teams worked with two mentors (an expert practitioner and a graduate student) to develop a strategic plan for initiating or continuing the development of an integrated tech prep program within urban schools. The planning documents for integrated tech prep programs at high schools and community colleges serving the following major cities are included: Washington, D.C.; Cleveland, Ohio; Las Cruces, New Mexico; Saint Paul, Minnesota; Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; Tuscaloosa, Alabama; Detroit, Michigan; Oklahoma City, Oklahoma; Raleigh, North Carolina; and Baltimore, Maryland. Each plan includes information on some or all of the following: current programs (if any), planning team members, program philosophy, student outcomes, program structure, secondary-postsecondary partnerships/articulation, evaluation, and budget.
