The SCORE System. Final Report. 1994-1995.
Collin County Community Coll., McKinney, TX.
Project SCORE (School and Community Offering Resources for Employment) was undertaken by Collin County Community College in Texas to develop a system to help McKinney High School students move with confidence from school to work and further education. The program, which was developed through the joint efforts of school and business/industry partners and others involved in school-to-work transition activities in Collin County, offers various school-based, work-based, and connecting activities/services, including the following: individual/group career assessments; career/life planning; job search skills training; occupational/educational selection assistance; adopt-a-student program (mentoring, job shadowing, internships); and information and referral (to colleges, business, and the community). The project has helped numerous students make successful transitions from school to work/further education and has strengthened vocational-technical education in Collin County by stimulating dialogue among business, community leaders, educators, parents, and students. (Appendixes constituting approximately 80% of this document contain the following: a list of project advisory council members; project forms; information about Project SCORE's internship program; a list of career assessment instruments; description of the career component; a career ladder employment system; a summer career college program; a school-to-work transition model presented statewide; project publicity materials; a list of 13 Project SCORE resources; and results of the Project SCORE evaluation.)
