This Technical Appendix is part of the report from the National Research Center for Career and Technical Education's (NRCCTE's) five-year longitudinal study of South Carolina's Personal Pathway to Success initiative, which was authorized by the state's Education and Economic Development Act (EEDA) in 2005. NRCCTE-affiliated researchers at the National Dropout Prevention Center at Clemson University investigated the extent to which EEDA facilitated the creation of programs of study/career pathways and whether these programs led to improved student high school and postgraduation preparation and planning. The study followed two student cohorts from a sample of eight high schools from economically and culturally diverse regions of the state. To create a broader understanding of EEDA's influence on schools, teachers, students, and the creation of programs of study (POS), various quantitative and qualitative data were collected and analyzed. This Technical Appendix contains the following chapters: (1) State and Federal Policy Framework; (2) Implementation of the Six Facets; (3) EEDA and the Development of Foundations for POS; (4) Guidance and Career-Focused Activities in Sample Schools; and (5) Assessment of EEDA Implementation.
