This description of the DeKalb Area Technical School near Clarkston, Georgia, serves as a guide on methods of developing curriculums and facilities for such schools. The classrooms, laboratories, and shops are described with photographic illustrations of the course offerings to daytime and nighttime students. The necessity to tailor vocational course offerings and facilities to the employment needs of local industry is pointed out as well as the need for flexible facilities to anticipate the rapidly changing employment needs of a technologically dynamic society. The Milwaukee, Wisconsin Vocational-Technical and Adult School enrolling 38,000 students per annum is also described as offering--(1) a continuation school for dropouts, (2) adult high school, (3) apprentice school, (4) Institute of Technology awarding associate of arts degrees, and (5) the adult school enrolling the largest percentage of students. The author stresses flexible, multi-purpose facilities with extensive use of audiovisual aids and TV instructional facilities. Particular mention is made of parking, food service and handicapped student facilities designed with the adult, employed student population in mind. (RLP)
