(2) OPERATIONALLY, SUCCESS OF TECHNICAL EDUCATION PROGRAMS DEPENDS ON ADEQUATE GUIDANCE, COORDINATION OF LOCAL, REGIONAL AND NATIONAL INTERESTS, RECRUITMENT OF QUALIFIED TEACHERS, AND DEVELOPMENT OF STATUS. (3) COMPLETE TECHNICAL EDUCATION PROGRAMS MUST PROVIDE COMPREHENSIVE STUDENT PERSONNEL SERVICES AND MUST MEET COMMUNITY NEEDS OF ADULT EDUCATION AND COMMUNITY SERVICES. (4) SELECTION OF THE LOCATION FOR A COMMUNITY COLLEGE MUST BE BASED ON STATEWIDE PLANNING, SOUND CRITERIA IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE STATE PLAN, AND STUDY OF THE LOCAL COMMUNITY. (5) ORGANIZATION AND FINANCE PLANS, WHICH ARE AFFECTED BY PATTERNS OF CONTROL OF COMMUNITY COLLEGES, THE GENERAL ORGANIZATION OF HIGHER EDUCATION, AND THE PUBLIC SCHOOL SYSTEM, SHOULD PROVIDE FOR A STATEWIDE COORDINATING AGENCY, ARTICULATION AMONG EDUCATIONAL LEVELS, LOCAL CONTROL AND TAX POWER, AND SHARING OF COSTS BY LOCAL AND STATE AGENCIES WITH AUGMENTATION FROM FEDERAL SOURCES.
