Approaches to CETA Vocational Education Coordination at the District and State Level.
Jacobson, Thomas J.
Both district and state-level programs have been implemented in the state of California to facilitate the coordination between CETA (Comprehensive Employment and Training Act) and vocational education. The Grossmont Union High School District established the Director of Grants and Contracts/School Improvement position to develop an internal structure and procedures to obtain external funding. In order to compete successfully and obtain, implement, and operate CETA programs, the school district developed a district-wide structure/model for the acquisition of grants and contracts and especially programs like CETA. The major problem with participation in CETA in California concerned lack of information about what CETA was, is, and could do for local school programs. A manual, How to Successfully Fund Guidance and Training Programs Under CETA, was developed to take an individual through necessary steps in learning about CETA and how to fund a project proposal. It was used at six statewide seminars (May 1980) to provide information on CETA and to train local district personnel on how to get involved with CETA. Participants were asked to evaluate the seminar. (Appendixes, amounting to well over one-half of the paper, describe manual content and provide extensive seminar evaluation results.) (YLB)
