The report outlines a K-12 career education program planned and implemented for 18 months. Six goals and objectives were designed to produce career exploration and practical occupational experiences, an instructional model, student and community counseling and placement services, and inservice education. The procedures followed in developing the program and 19 results and accomplishments are listed and discussed. Also described are means of internal and external evaluation and nine conclusions and recommendations for improvement and expansion of the program. The second part of the report presents the results of a third party evaluation done by the Research Coordinating Unit, University of Nebraska which attempted to relate project activity, recommendations, and suggestions to project objectives. Results, activities, and problems were reported to the evaluation committee on a quarterly basis. Tabulation of activities and recommendations directed at the objectives indicates the productivity of the project. The evaluation concludes with a list of future recommendations for what was found to be a generally successful program having local and statewide impact. Appended are: list of career education source materials, student evaluation of an instructional unit, list of teacher-developed units, PERT chart of learning activities for staff improvement, and inservice program evaluation instrument.
