Development of Model Policies, Procedures, and Agreements Which Enhance Student Articulation between Secondary and beyond Secondary Vocational Education Programs and between Public School and College Vocational Education Programs Offered beyond the Secondary Level. Final Report.
The purpose of this project was to develop a set of model policies, procedures, and agreements that would enhance student articulation among and between secondary and postsecondary vocational education programs. The project was divided into four phases. In the first phase, a nationwide search and review of existing articulation programs and literature was conducted. From this review, a model outline was constructed based on the following five areas of articulation: (1) counseling/orientation, (2) admission requirements, (3) granting of credit, (4) duplication of effort, and (5) job placement and follow-up. Phase 2 consisted of a series of five work sessions with support personnel, vocational center guidance personnel, and college admission and recruitment personnel which developed model articulation policies, procedures, and agreements. The third phase consisted of a series of in-service sessions with vocational faculty members to review and revise the proposed agreements. Phase four was the final compiling and editing of the articulation agreement which contains specific guidelines in each of the five areas of articulation. (Appended material includes the articulation agreement, articulation checklist, recommended planning schedule, and instruction format.) (LRA)
