5. Additional Information for Parents
Oregon’s Partnership for Occupational and Career Information (POCI) undertook a project to deliver career information directly to a parent audience in order to better address two of its goals:
- Improve parent access to information and planning resources that relate educational preparation to career goals and expectations.
- Equip teachers, administrators, and counselors with the knowledge and skills needed to assist parents with occupational information, career exploration, and educational opportunities and financing.
