San D, I teach an Art Technology class to 8th grade, we are going into curriculum year review and I'm thinking that besides writing what art standards our program hits, also put in what vocational standards the program hits. The guy head of our vocational education told me if I did, I would be open for vocational funding along with my art funding. Something to think about.

Hi all
  I know this is a bad time to ask, but perhaps during the summer, when
there's some down time,...I have a request. I will be scrambling to write a
graphic design curriculum for high school this summer. Long story short, our
district has decided to put in a vocational/technology component into
graduation requirements (for 2 years from now) and I would like to include
the art department electives as a choice. If you have a graphic design class
in your school district, I would LOVE to see the curriculum. I will pay for
postage. As an aside, I was yearbook adviser for many years and am 'fluent'
in PageMaker, and I also worked as a commercial design artist many years
ago, so I have 'background' to work with. I am also collaborating with our
newest art teacher (who was my student 6 years ago). We want to be ahead of
the game and work up a comprehensive presentation to the Board of Education
describing the curriculum

   Please email me privately if you can help.
