CREATE's Tech Prep Implementation Guide. CREATE's 4+2+2.
Francis Tuttle Vo-Tech Center, Oklahoma City, OK.
This guide, developed through the Consortium to Restructure Education through Academic and Technological Excellence (CREATE), a partnership among high schools, a vocational-technical center, a community college, and universities in Oklahoma, presents information, resources, and examples for development and implementation of a tech prep program in the state. The integration of academic and vocational training enhances the high school student's opportunity for employment upon graduation from high school and provides articulation toward a certificate or a two-year degree. CREATE's 4+2+2 plan encourages students to pursue the 4-year baccalaureate degree if their career choice requires it. The guide is organized in 12 sections that cover the following topics: (1) introduction (definition of tech prep and rationale for it); (2) the development and functioning of CREATE; (3) curriculum development; (4) articulation, including steps for successful articulation and a sample articulation plan; (5) staff development; (6) business and industry collaboration and partnership models; (7) guidance and counseling, including a counselor handbook; (8) marketing; (9) implementation steps; (10) program evaluation; (11) several local, state, and federal resources; and (12) a nine-item bibliography.
