Abstract:

Data from national Tech-Prep surveys that were completed by more than 800 Tech-Prep consortium coordinators in fall 1993 and/or fall 1994 were analyzed to assess the emergence of Tech-Prep at the state and local levels. It was discovered that, between 1993 and 1994, the number of Tech-Prep consortia nationwide increased from 812 to 953, the percentage of consortia able to identify and count students participating in Tech-Prep increased from 29% to 53%, and the number of students identified as Tech-Prep participants increased by 150%. Tech-Prep students appeared to be achieving intermediate outcomes in greater numbers. An estimated 97% of Tech-Prep seniors graduated from high school in spring 1994 (versus 94% in 1993), and approximately 56% of 1994 Tech-Prep high school graduates entered postsecondary education or training the following fall. Between 1993 and 1994, Tech-Prep consortia continued to lay important groundwork for transformation to school-to-work systems; however, applied academic curricula, articulation agreements, and career development activities were implemented in only a relatively small proportion of consortium districts and schools. Tech-Prep progress on school-to-work features was most evident in reports of increased school-industry collaboration. (Contains 27 tables/figures) (mn).
