Proposed Accreditation Standards for Florida Vocational-Technical Schools and Adult High Schools.
Florida State Dept. of Education, Tallahassee.
Three levels of accreditation standards for vocational and adult schools, based on educational quality, performance, and achievement, are presented. Level I standards include those items considered to be minimum educational and legal requirements as set forth in Florida statutes and regulations. Full compliance with these standards will not necessarily assure either a minimum or a quality program. Level II standards represent desirable items intended to broaden the scope and improve the effectiveness of the program. Level IIIstandards represent the most desirable materials, equipment, practices, and personnel and may be used as long-range guidelines. Major divisions are (1) The Over-All Standards, (2) Adult High School Standards, and (3) Vocational-Technical School Standards. The school seeking accreditation (1) completes a successful self-evaluation report based on the standards, (2) submits to a visiting committee's review of its self evaluation, and (3) receives "approval" or "non-approval" accreditation classifications based on compliance with at least the minimum criteria. The committee may recommend improvements, and it will reevaluate the school every 3 to 6 years. Each standard has a numeric code for ease in tabulating and reporting information relative to each item. (EM)
