California Community College Foster Parent Training Project: First Interim Report.
California Community Colleges, Sacramento.
On December 27, 1978, the California State Department of Social Services issued a contract to the Los Rios Community College District for the training of foster parents, prospective foster parents, and agency workers throughout the state. The contract stated that training was to be provided for foster parents in 15 community colleges and that each participating college was to receive $1,500 to develop, refine, and implement training programs. As of January 1979, 27 colleges had expressed interest in participating in the project, and because of a surplus of funds in certain budget categories, it was possible to fund 21 of these colleges, instead of the proposed 15. Each college is structuring its program differently--some colleges are having one course composed of a set number of sessions; some colleges are holding workshops throughout the spring; and others are holding a number of mini-courses. The subject matter of these courses, the manner in which students were and are being recruited, and the techniques being used to present the material vary greatly from campus to campus. This report lists the participating campuses, campus liaison person, program type, and class dates. In addition, it offers brief descriptions of the activities of each campus, focusing on goals, topics to be covered, course structures, and staffing plans. (MB)
