Hershey, Alan; And Others
This document profiles the diverse approaches to tech-prep taken by 10 local districts across the United States. The tech-prep programs in the following cities are profiled: Dayton, Ohio; Dothan, Alabama; East Peoria, Illinois; Fresno, California; Gainesville, Florida; Hartford, Connecticut; Logan, West Virginia; Salem, Oregon; Springdale, Arkansas; and Springfield, Massachusetts. Each profile includes information about the following aspects of the program: articulation and programs of study; changes in curriculum and instruction; recruitment, guidance, and career development; and governance and resources. Discussed in the final chapter are the following emerging issues: students toward whom tech-prep is targeted; the importance of articulation to tech-prep development; ways consortia can make programs of study a meaningful feature of tech-prep; the implications of alternative strategies for introducing applied academics; the extent to which tech-prep will change postsecondary programs; and the role business and industry can be expected to play in tech-prep.
