SHARED-TIME (DUAL ENROLLMENT) CONCEPT FOR AREA VOCATIONAL EDUCATION PROGRAMS. FINAL REPORT.
MEADERS, O. DONALD
THE OBJECTIVES OF THE PROJECT WERE TO DETERMINE THE EXTENT AND NATURE OF SHARED-TIME VOCATIONAL EDUCATION PROGRAMS IN OPERATION THROUGHOUT THE UNITED STATES AND TO DEVELOP SOME ADMINISTRATIVE GUIDELINES FOR ESTABLISHING SUCH PROGRAMS. A QUESTIONNAIRE TO SECURE INFORMATION ABOUT ADMINISTRATIVE ORGANIZATIONS, NUMBER AND SIZE OF SCHOOLS PARTICIPATING, ENROLLMENT, TYPES OF SERVICES, WAYS OF INFORMING STUDENTS AND PARENTS ABOUT AVAILABLE COURSES, AND SOURCES OF FUNDS WAS SENT TO THE MORE THAN 140 SCHOOLS HAVING SHARED-TIME PROGRAMS IDENTIFIED BY STATE DIRECTORS OF VOCATIONAL EDUCATION. SOME FINDINGS FROM RESPONSES FROM 70 SCHOOLS WERE--(1) USUALLY THE FACILITIES WERE PROVIDED AT ONE CENTRAL SITE, (2) ABOUT 80 PERCENT OF THE SCHOOLS PROVIDED TRANSPORTATION FOR STUDENTS AND MORE THAN ONE-THIRD OF THE SCHOOLS REPORTED STUDENT TRAVEL OF 20 MILES OR MORE, (3) THE LARGEST NUMBER OF SCHOOLS WERE IN RURAL-URBAN AREAS OF NOT MORE THAN 25,000 POPULATION, (4) 50 PERCENT OF THE PROGRAMS WERE ADMINISTERED THROUGH A REGULAR HIGH SCHOOL DISTRICT AND 30 PERCENT THROUGH AN INTERMEDIATE OR COUNTY DISTRICT, AND (5) MORE THAN 60 PERCENT INDICATED THAT STUDENTS SPENT MORE THAN TWO PERIODS PER DAY, 5 DAYS PER WEEK IN THE CENTER. REPRESENTATIVES FROM 17 PUBLIC HIGH SCHOOLS, 11 INTERMEDIATE SCHOOL DISTRICTS, AND FIVE COMMUNITY COLLEGES, PARTICIPATING IN A WORKSHOP FOR PLANNING SHARED-TIME VOCATIONAL ROGRAMS, DEVELOPED A LIST OF SUGGESTED ACTIONS TO FACILITATE AREA PROGRAM DEVELOPMENT. THE SUGGESTIONS CONCERNED LEGAL, COMMUNITY, CURRICULAR, AND MANPOWER DEMAND CONSIDERATIONS. (MM)
