The Legislature hereby finds and declares that there exists in this state a serious need to increase the effectiveness of career development programs through the dissemination and implementation of the products, processes, and guidelines established by the California career guidance project initiated at the Office of Superintendent of Schools, Department of Education, San Diego County pursuant to the former provisions contained in Chapter 1209 of the Statutes of 1973. For this purpose, the Legislature intends the continuation of the California career guidance center and the addition of a career guidance center in Los Angeles County. They shall serve as regional guidance resource centers amply equipped with current career measurement and career guidance resources and a professional resource staff. In addition, the California career guidance center at the Office of Superintendent of Schools, San Diego County, shall, subject to approval by the San Diego County Board of Education, serve as a resource to the two additional centers through the dissemination and implementation of the guidelines, products, processes, and staff development programs developed as a result of the pilot activities of that center. The Department of Education, in cooperation and consultation with the advisory committee established pursuant to Section 52343, shall provide state-level guidance and supervision to the three career guidance centers.
