State Planning for the Delivery of Vocational Education to Special Populations. Final Report.
Spetz, Sally H.; And Others
A project developed a system to assist states in planning vocational education services to meet the needs of special populations. It had three goals: (1) design and develop a comprehensive planning system for states to select strategies for planning the delivery of vocational education services, (2) train state personnel for system implementation, and (3) provide for continued United States Office of Education assistance to state planning efforts. The Vocational Education for Special Populations (E.S.P.) Planning System was designed to parallel the conceptual model of planning described by the Management Evaluation Review for Quality. Development of the system involved special population procedure identification, assessment of state of the art, development of preliminary system documentation, and field test of the E.S.P. program. The system was disseminated through three regional workshops. Other activities included a follow-up evaluation, preparation of guidelines for technical assistance, and development of final supportive materials. Major products were a two-volume state-of-the-art report, the Vocational E.S.P. Planning System, E.S.P. sound filmstrip, and report containing the guidelines. (Appendixes, amounting to approximately one-half of the report, include field test materials and workshop information packet and handouts.) (YLB)
