We are pleased to announce three (identical) sessions on Career Plan implementation. In keeping with Perkins IV, the sessions will be followed by technical assistance through June 30, 2008.

  • Community Center in Amherst - October 16, 2007
  • Northern Essex Community College - October 30, 2007
  • Bridgewater State College - November 15, 2007

At these sessions, teams of school personnel will learn more about Career Plans that are required for each student enrolled in a Chapter 74-approved vocational technical education program. In order to qualify as a candidate for the Certificate of Occupational Proficiency, a student must meet several requirements, one of which is the possession of a Career Plan.

Each high school with Chapter 74-approved vocational technical education programs is invited to send a team of 3-6, formed by the principal, to one session. Minimally, the team must include a school counselor, vocational technical supervisor/director, and a teacher. Ideally, the team would include the principal, school guidance director, academic coordinator, vocational technical supervisor/director, teacher, and a postsecondary education partner (e.g., public two-year college or registered apprenticeship program representative from an advisory committee). Upon return to the high school, the team will develop or revise their Career Plan instrument and process.

In order to support the teams back at the schools, the Department is contracting with experts that will provide technical assistance to individual teams through June 30, 2008.

The principal should register the individuals by sending their names, titles and email addresses to Jeanette Cuevas at jcuevas@doe.mass.edu by October 1, 2007. Note that teams or individuals who are not registered may not be admitted to the sessions.

If you have any questions about the registration process, please call Ms. Cuevas at 781-338-3944. Questions about the content of the conference sessions should be directed to Karen DeCoster at 781-338-3115 or John McDonagh at 781-338-3954 or 781-863-1863.
