Secondary vocational-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). Culinary Arts is a pathway for students in the Human Science, Art, and Humanities career cluster. The Culinary Arts pathway program includes classroom and hands-on experiences that will prepare students for employment or continuing education in the foodservice industry. This program was written to incorporate the National Restaurant Associations (NRA) ProStart learning objectives. Any student who successfully completes this program and the mentoring requirements of the NRA can take the National ProStart Certificate of Achievement exam. This is a national certification program recognized throughout the foodservice industry. Each district should implement a maximum student number due to the size of each lab. Appended are: (1) 21st Century Skills Standards; (2) Mississippi Academic Standards; (3) ACT College Readiness Standards; (4) National Industry Standards; and (5) National Educational Technology Standards for Students. A list of references is provided for each unit.
