Secondary career-technical education programs in Mississippi are faced with many challenges resulting from sweeping educational reforms at the national and state levels. Schools and teachers are increasingly being held accountable for providing true learning activities to every student in the classroom. This accountability is measured through increased requirements for mastery and attainment of competency as documented through both formative and summative assessments. The courses in this document reflect the statutory requirements as found in Section 37-3-49, Mississippi Code of 1972, as amended (Section 37-3-46). In addition, this curriculum reflects guidelines imposed by federal and state mandates (Laws, 1988, ch. 487, Section 14; Laws, 1991, ch. 423, Section 1; Laws, 1992, ch. 519, Section 4 effective from and after July 1, 1992; Carl D. Perkins Vocational Education Act IV, 2007; and No Child Left Behind Act of 2001). Business Management is a 2-year program for students in the Business: Management, Marketing, and Technology Pathway. The program is designed to prepare students for careers or continuing education in management or entrepreneurship and was written to incorporate the Business Administration Core Standards published by the Marketing Education Resource Center. Appended are: (1) Suggested Rubrics and Checklist; (2) 21st Century Skills Standards; (3) Mississippi Academic Standards; (4) ACT College Readiness Standards; (5) National Industry Standards; and (6) National Educational Technology Standards for Students. A list of references is provided for each unit. (Contains 5 footnotes.)
