A PILOT PROGRAM TO TEST THE FEASIBILITY OF INCREASING THE NUMBER OF VOCATIONAL AND TECHNICAL EDUCATION SCHOLARSHIPS IN TOOELE COUNTY, UTAH. FINAL REPORT.
MORRILL, EUGENE L.
IN RESPONSE TO THE DEMAND FOR VOCATIONALLY EDUCATED PERSONNEL AND TO THE RECOGNIZED DEFICIENCY IN THE NUMBER OF AVAILABLE NONBACCALAUREATE SCHOLARSHIPS FOR HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS, A PROGRAM IN TOOELE COUNTY WAS DEVISED TO INCREASE THE AVAILABILITY AND UTILIZATION OF SUCH SCHOLARSHIPS. THE PILOT PROGRAM DEMONSTRATED THAT--(1) A CITIZEN'S COMMITTEE COULD BE ORGANIZED, (2) THE COMMITTEE COULD INCREASE THE NUMBER OF AVAILABLE SCHOLARSHIPS THROUGH SECURING LOCAL CONTRIBUTIONS, (3) THE ADDITIONAL SCHOLARSHIPS WOULD BE APPLIED FOR AND ACCEPTED, (4) THE COMMITTEE COULD OBTAIN MORE FAVORABLE PUBLICITY FOR VOCATIONAL AND TECHNICAL EDUCATION THAN IT HAD PREVIOUSLY HAD, AND (5) THE COMMITTEE COULD COORDINATE ITS EFFORTS EFFECTIVELY WITH THE SCHOOL ADMINISTRATION. IT WAS CONCLUDED THAT THE TOOELE COUNTY COMMITTEE AND PROGRAM WOULD SUSTAIN ITSELF FROM YEAR TO YEAR, AND THAT THE INAUGURATION OF SIMILAR PROGRAMS IN OTHER DISTRICTS OF THE STATE WAS WARRANTED. AN EIGHT-STEP PROCEDURE USED TO ACHIEVE THE PROGRAMS GOALS IS INCLUDED. (ET)
