State Plans for Implementing Programs of Study
Lewis, Morgan V.; Overman, Laura
Career and Technical Education Research, v33 n3 p217-226 2008
This article examines how the states plan to implement the Programs of Study (POS) that were mandated by the 2006 reauthorization of the federal legislation for career and technical education. A coding system was developed for summarizing the methods described in the plans of all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Guam, and the Virgin Islands. The POS will primarily be implemented through modification and expansion of existing delivery methods. In two-thirds of the 53 plans, local districts will have the primary responsibility for developing POS using criteria and templates provided by the states. All states will approve local plans and provide technical assistance and professional development. (Contains 2 figures and 1 footnote.)
