LEA/Prime Sponsor Relationships: Practitioner Suggestions for Successful Solutions. Monographs on Career Education.
Hoyt, Kenneth B.
This monograph discusses seven topics regarding ways in which local K-12 school districts could and should relate with the Comprehensive Employment and Training Act (CETA) Prime Sponsor in their particular geographic area. The seven priority issues were identified by participants in a series of 15 two-day mini-conferences conducted by the Office of Career Education and oriented around the general topic of "Youth Employment Training Program (YETP) and Career Education." Each topic is discussed in a separate section, which identifies relevant sub-topics/issues. These sub-topics are presented in such a way that both the nature of the problem and practitioner actions in resolving the problem are addressed. The seven issues discussed are (1) local education agency (LEA)/Prime Sponsor authority and responsibility under YETP, (2) differences in CETA's and LEA's philosophy and goals, (3) fitting YETP into the educational system, (4) creating a positive view of YETP among educators, (5) involving the broader community in the YETP effort, (6) work sites and work site supervision in YETP, and (7) evaluating YETP efforts.
