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 III, 1998; and No Child Left Behind Act of 2001). Automotive Collision Repair Technology I is an instructional program that orients an individual to the field of automotive collision repair. Automotive Collision Repair Technology II is a continuation of Automotive Collision Repair Technology I and allows an individual to prepare for employment or continued education in the occupation of automotive collision repair. Each course must be taught in a minimum two class period block. The first course in the program includes instruction in the foundation skills related to safety, tools and equipment usage measurement, basic automotive collision repair, non-structural and structural analysis and damage repair, mechanical and electrical, and painting and refinishing. The second course in the program provides students with advanced skills related to non-structural and structural analysis and damage repair, mechanical and electrical, and painting and refinishing. Appended are: (1) ASE/NATEF 2006 Collision Repair and Refinishing Standards; (2) Academic Standards; (3) 21st Century Skills; and (4) Rubrics and Resources. (Contains 6 footnotes.)
