Career academies as a method of school reform were studied. A guide for implementing the foundation teaching academy course Careers in Education was developed and submitted for approval at Auburn High School. The Careers in Education Resource Guide was the accumulation of information to assist Family and Consumer Science teachers with the implementation of the first career academy offered at Auburn High School. Included in the Careers in Education Resource Guide was the alignment of curriculum components with the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction Careers in Education frameworks. Furthermore, the guide integrated competencies which matched the Washington State Essential Academic Learning Requirements. The results of the guide empowered the Careers in Education program by having provided supporting units of instruction. Important information for student recruitment, timelines, and guidelines were developed.
