New York State Education Dept., Albany. Bureau of Occupational Education Research.
To identify current program characteristics, the Boards of Cooperative Educational Services (BOCES) in New York State sent a questionnaire to the administrators of 57 BOCES programs. The questionnaire sought basic enrollment data pertaining to occupational education programs in agriculture, distribution, health, home economics (gainful), office, technical, and trade and industry. Data from 43 returned questionnaires revealed that secondary enrollment ranged from 23 to 1,275 students and that courses offered ranged from one to seven occupational fields, with two programs training students only in one field and three programs offering courses in all seven. The enrollment of 23 adult programs ranged from 8 to 357 students, with from one to four courses being offered. In addition to enrollment, selected characteristics were identified regarding component and noncomponent school districts and courses offered at the secondary level. The questionnaire is appended.
