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). Small Engine Repair is an instructional program that generally prepares individuals to repair small internal-combustion engines used on portable power equipment such as lawn mowers, chain saws, rotary tillers, motorcycles, and lawn and garden tractors. Students in Small Engine Repair I complete study in safety, tools and equipment, fasteners, measuring, engine identification and inspection, basic engine principles and design, lubrication systems, cooling systems, fuel systems, basic electricity, and ignition systems. Students in Small Engine Repair II complete study in safety, charging systems, starting systems, exhaust systems, overhaul of four-stroke and two-stroke cycle engines, governor systems, shop management, and troubleshooting. Appended are: (1) Equipment & Engine Training Council Standards for Small Engine Repair; (2) Academic Standards; (3) Workplace Skills for the 21st Century; (4) National Educational Technology Standards for Students; and (5) Evaluations and Rubrics for Small Engine Repair.
