Developing and Operating a Vocational Center.
Minnesota State Dept. of Education, St. Paul. Div. of Vocational and Technical Education.
A vocational center is a joint effort among neighboring districts to provide comprehensive vocational education for K-12 students and adults in the community. Some considerations in planning a center are to: (1) explore the interests of all neighboring schools, (2) appoint a full-time director 1 year before the center will offer programs, (3) survey the community and students, (4) form a governing board, (5) develop a plan for the first year, (6) select facilities, (7) seek staff, and (8) provide for staff to develop or adapt curricula before the program begins. Considerations in operating a center include: (1) reviewing all procedures for developing a center, (2) providing for a variety of adult vocational programs, (3) evaluating the program annually, (4) planning for expansion, (5) planning for career development K-12, (6) working cooperatively with advisory committees, and (7) arranging for curriculum coordination between vocational center programs and nearby post-secondary programs. Information on funding and costs, program and goals, and legislative action is included. (GEB)
