Middle School Guidance and Career Development (Career Cadre Initiative). 1997-1998 Final Report.
Zhao, Peisheng; Nania, Sharon
During the 1997-98 fiscal year, the New York State Middle School Guidance and Career Development Cadres continued to be funded under the Carl D. Perkins Vocational and Applied Technology Act. Twenty career cadres formed by each Tech Prep Consortium continued training middle school staff in career development principles. These career cadre projects conducted staff development activities for schools participating in the consortium and other schools in the coverage area. Membership for all cadres was reported as 222. Members included tech prep coordinators, middle school teachers, guidance counselor, administrators, administrators, school personnel, and social workers. The cadres conducted 207 events serving roughly 12,300 participants and 4,100 students. Staff development activities included statewide conferences and workshops and local or self-directed training and development undertaken by cadres. Cadres conducted turnkey training events that raised awareness and developed expertise of various stakeholders involved in educating students and preparing them for the world of work. Cadres were continuing to prepare turnkey trainers in topics related to middle school career development. Cadre team leaders raised concern and issues, including requests of assistance to deal with fiscal problems, funding issues, and accessing real support from school districts to perform turnkey training. (Appendixes include lists of tech prep middle school cadres and turnkey training.) (YLB)
