Bond, David L.
This booklet, which is intended for individuals responsible for evaluating and improving tech prep and school-to-work programs, examines the history, structure, and use of the Tech Prep/School-to-Work Index and Improvement Program, which was developed to provide a system for conducting internally focused evaluations of tech prep and school-to-work programs. The booklet begins with a brief discussion of the need for the index and improvement program. Discussed in section 2 are the following: purpose and components; the six-level hierarchy of educational development on which the is based; development, characteristics, and use of the student, teacher and administrator, and employer survey; and benefits of the program. Section 3 explains the aims and features of tech prep and school-to work and their relationship to one another and summarizes selected studies of "best practices" in tech prep and school-to-work. Thirty-eight footnotes are included. Also included are a brochure providing an overview of the Tech Prep/School-to-Work Index and Improvement Program and the first two of a series of updates concerning the program. (MN)
