The Job Training Agency would supply its clients with resume- writing and job-searching skills, as well as mock job interviews. Despite the emphasis on work, public school students would gradu- ate with more than a set of skills geared toward a specific career. They still would get an education designed to provide basic skills everyone needs: reading, writing, mathematics, teamwork and problem-solving skills "We are certainly not trying to take anything away from the normal amount of said Lee Frazier, program manager for work force development at FCC. To get a taste of career fields, county high school students already have several programs available, such as work study, job shadowing, mentor-internships, college courses or community service projects Though common locally, other jurisdictions lack similar oppor- tunities, which was why Frederick County received the grant, officials said. "There are some counties around here, and states, that are clueless in how to implement this or how to FCC spokeswoman Susie Loveland said. Only two other Maryland jurisdictions received grants. To put School to Careers in place, Frederick County schools have created six career clusters: arts and communications, business and management systems, health ser- vices, human services, industrial and engineering technology, and natural resources and agriculture Students would pick one as they enter high school, and they could change at any time, even just before the spring semester before senior year, said David Wilier, assistant superintendent of career and tech- nology education. The clusters also could help teachers make lessons relevant to students A future farmer might write about the development of the apple, a future engineer might write about the development of the cotton gin, and a future doctor might write about the development of the polio vaccine, he said The clusters, though, would guide students into activities outside the classroom that give them a sense of what a job entails. School administrators want almost all students to have such an activity, and it could be a graduation requirement sometime in the future, said R. Daniel Cunningham, assistant to Superintendent Jack Dale. Such experiences don't have to be time consuming, he said. Some could take only one period one semester and others might take two periods each semester. "They see why they need to know algebra. They see why they need to have good oral communication said Lisa Eye-Mangini, special projects facilitator for School to Careers. Existing programs have had another benefit, said Mr. Cramer, of Walkersville High. The students have become role models for younger students. "They feel more important and they're beginning to take that first step into the Mr. Cramer said. Walkersville and Urbana high schools are preparing how they would put Schools to Careers into place, and other schools will make their plans in succeeding years. Because Urbana High has only has ninth- and lOth-graders, the school has created new relationships, principal Henry Bohlander said. Principals in the feeder pattern meet each month for a planning session. Business people regularly describe the skills they need Business part- ners are actively sought; one has helped supply computers At Walkersville High, about 200 students have been part of a transitioning activity, Mr. Cramer said. School to Careers will mean the numbers are likely to increase.
