VOCATIONAL EDUCATION MASTER PLAN REPORT.
Grossmont Union High School District, CA.
THIS REPORT COVERS THE FIRST TWO PHASES OF A PROPOSED SIX-PHASE PLAN. A COMMITTEE OF ONE REPRESENTATIVE FROM EACH HIGH SCHOOL, A VOCATIONAL COUNSELOR, AND THE DISTRICT VOCATIONAL EDUCATION CONSULTANT DEVELOPED GUIDELINES FOR THE MASTER PLAN BASED ON OPINIONS AND RECOMMENDATIONS OF AN 18-MEMBER COUNCIL OF HIGH SCHOOL VOCATIONAL EDUCATION TEACHERS. THE COMMITTEE (1) STUDIED CURRENT VOCATIONAL EDUCATION PROGRAMS, LOCAL AND STATE EMPLOYMENT CONDITIONS AND TRENDS, THE STUDENT POPULATION, AND PRESENT FACILITIES AND EQUIPMENT, (2) SET UP AS A PILOT PROJECT A 3-WEEK AIRCRAFT ASSEMBLY OCCUPATIONAL TRAINING COURSE, AND (3) MADE A PRELIMINARY EVALUATION OF DEMAND OCCUPATIONS. CURRICULAR RECOMMENDATIONS WERE TO (1) IMPLEMENT A FOUR-TRACK PLAN WITHIN THE SCHOOL ACCORDING TO STUDENT COMMITMENT, (2) PROVIDE MORE EFFECTIVE VOCATIONAL ORIENTATION AT THE EIGHTH GRADE LEVEL, (3) ESTABLISH A VOCATIONAL EXPLORATORY PROGRAM AT THE NINTH GRADE LEVEL, (4) CREATE INTERDISCIPLINARY COORDINATION IN ALL RELATED COURSES IN HIGH SCHOOL, (5) PROVIDE A CONCENTRATION OF VOCATIONAL CLASSES IN 11TH AND 12TH GRADES, (6) PROVIDE FINAL SPECIFIC OCCUPATIONAL TRAINING NEAR THE END OF THE HIGH SCHOOL PROGRAM, AND (7) ESTABLISH A DISTRICT RESPONSIBILITY FOR PLACING STUDENTS IN GAINFUL EMPLOYMENT. ORGANIZATIONAL RECOMMENDATIONS CONCERNED (1) ESTABLISHING A VOCATIONAL EDUCATION COUNCIL, SPECIAL COMMITTEES, AND A VOCATIONAL ADVISORY COUNCIL, (2) COORDINATING THE DISTRICT ORGANIZATION, (3) STUDYING FACILITIES AND SERVICE, (4) PLACING STUDENTS, AND (5) INITIATING OTHER IMPROVEMENTS. EACH OF THE RECOMMENDATIONS IS DISCUSSED IN DETAIL. A SUMMARY OF THE SUMMER EXPERIMENT IN AIRCRAFT ASSEMBLY AND SUMMARY DATA FROM RESEARCH ARE INCLUDED. (BS)
