This study presents practices and processes of articulated Tech Prep programs throughout the country as they existed in the Spring of 1991. The study is based on a comprehensive literature review, national survey, case study/site visits, and general observations of the project research staff. There were two major areas of focus in the project: (1) to get a general picture of the status of Tech Prep programs in the United States; and (2) to learn about Tech Prep programs for the at-risk students. This study should be useful to anyone involved or planning to get involved in Tech Prep.
