Educational Research Services, Inc., White Plains, NY.
This report describes the development of a master plan for identifying and accommodating disadvantaged and handicapped students within the vocational education programs of the Virginia Community College System. The general project objectives reported on were: (1) to determine the potential number of disadvantaged and handicapped students by college region; (2) to identify means for providing special programs serving these students; (3) to examine the number of these students now being served in different types of specialized instructional offerings; (4) to identify state, federal, and other programs that are potential sources of support; and (5) to make recommendations on a plan that would include referral of students, provision of instructional materials, and training of needed personnel. The project's work schedule consisted of reviewing pertinent literature, contacting appropriate state and federal agencies regarding legislation and programs, examining available statistical information collected by the 22 community college regions, and directly contacting and interviewing staff and clients of a 6-college sample.
