DEVELOPING A PROGRAM OF STUDENT PERSONNEL SERVICES FOR AREA VOCATIONAL-TECHNICAL SCHOOLS. PHASE I REPORT.
BOTTOMS, JAMES E.
THE STUDENT PERSONNEL SERVICES NEEDED AND THE EXTENT TO WHICH STUDENT PERSONNEL SERVICES WERE BEING PERFORMED IN GEORGIA'S AREA VOCATIONAL-TECHNICAL SCHOOLS WERE DETERMINED. DATA WERE GATHERED BY THE USE OF (1) CRITERION CHECKSHEETS CONTAINING 167 ITEMS ON WHICH ADMINISTRATIVE PERSONNEL INDICATED THE EXTENT TO WHICH A SERVICE WAS NEEDED AND WAS CURRENTLY BEING PERFORMED, AND (2) A SCHEDULE OF STUDENT PERSONNEL SERVICES CONTAINING 69 ITEMS ON WHICH STUDENTS AND FACULTY MEMBERS INDICATED THE EXTENT TO WHICH A SERVICE WAS NEEDED AND WAS CURRENTLY BEING PERFORMED. DATA WERE PROVIDED BY A TOTAL OF 37 ADMINISTRATIVE PERSONNEL, 190 FACULTY MEMBERS, AND 290 FULL-TIME DAY AND 137 PART-TIME NIGHT STUDENTS, REPRESENTING A 10 PERCENT RANDOM SAMPLE, FROM 15 PARTICIPATING SCHOOLS. FOR ALL RESPONDENT GROUPS, THE CONCEPT OF WHAT WAS NEEDED SEEMED TO BE WELL DEFINED. THE DATA INDICATED THAT THE CURRENT PERFORMANCE OF STUDENT PERSONNEL SERVICES IN AREA SCHOOLS WAS INADEQUATE AND WAS NOT MEETING THE NEEDS OF THE STUDENTS. FROM THE REACTIONS OF ALL RESPONDENT GROUPS, IT WAS CONCLUDED THAT AREA SCHOOLS SHOULD PROVIDE EFFICIENT RECRUITMENT AND ADMISSIONS PROGRAMS, A COMPREHENSIVE PERSONNEL RECORD SYSTEM, AN ORGANIZED ORIENTATION PROGRAM, AN INFORMATION SERVICE, PROFESSIONAL COUNSELORS, A JOB PLACEMENT PROGRAM, AND A SYSTEMATIC AND PERIODIC FOLLOWUP STUDY OF GRADUATES, DROPOUTS, AND EMPLOYERS FOR EVALUATING TRAINING PROGRAMS. A BIBLIOGRAPHY, THE INSTRUMENTS, AND DATA FOR EACH INSTRUMENT ITEM ARE INCLUDED. (PS)
