Iowa State Dept. of Public Instruction, Des Moines. Area Schools and Career Education Branch.
Statistical and descriptive information illustrate the opportunities available in Iowa's 15 area schools. They provide general information about the statewide merged area school system, its history, current status, and enrollments for the 1978-1979 school year. Specific data are also given concerning enrollments, admission policies, financial aid, student activities, instructional programs, and new programs under consideration at each of Iowa's 13 community colleges and two vocational schools. Detailed charts present comparative full- and part-time enrollment data in career, college parallel, and other educational divisions. After a discussion of adult and continuing education programs, preparatory career programs, and college parallel courses and programs, major pre-baccalaureate concentration areas are listed in terms of their availability at the 15 schools. Special programs for the disadvantaged, the handicapped, and Comprehensive Employment and Training Act (CETA) candidates are also discussed. Tables show area school revenue by category and expenditures by function; revenue and expenditures by institution; state and federal vocational aid; and state general aid for 1967 to 1978. The report concludes with an historical review of major state legislation affecting area schools from 1965 to 1978, and an index to all programs available in the 15 schools by taxonomy number. (RC)
