Entry to Exit. Identification, Monitoring and Tracking of Handicapped and Disadvantaged Students. Final Report.
Primavera, Joanne M.
In view of new federal guidelines, a project sought to write a procedure for identifying disadvantaged, handicapped, and/or nontraditional students and set up a monitoring system in the Renton Vocational Technical Institute. A literature review showed no practical tracking system had been published. The identification procedure developed included registration form responses, testing, request for services form, instructor feedback, and financial aid office information. The monitoring and tracking model developed incorporated early warning and intervention procedures. Procedures for identification of special groups of students were also written for the secondary level. A proposed process to "pass information on" from secondary vocational programs to adult vocational programs was found to be in violation of the Family Privacy Act unless specific steps were taken. The responsibility of overall monitor was assigned to the vocational counselor. Two additional services developed included an outline for conducting inservice for instructors who work with disadvantaged/handicapped students and a handbook of services for handicapped students. (Both are appended. Other appendixes provide sample registration and student identification forms.) (YLB)
