Impact Evaluation of the Area Vocational School Delivery System. Executive Summary (and) Technical Report.
Spooner, Kendrick L.; Curtis, Douglas R.
The purposes of this study were to describe: (1) the structure, services, programs, problems, and other characteristics of area vocational schools; (2) the impact of services provided by the area vocational schools on students; and (3) the local school administrators' perceptions of the area vocational school system. It was found that communication and coordination between the cooperating schools and the area vocational school were adequate. Adult education programs were the weakest portion of most area vocational school delivery systems. Problems in serving districts in geographical isolation areas and areas with low population densities were also identified. Sixteen recommendations are provided as guides for implementing programs to assist area vocational schools. In summation, the students, administrators, and counselors from both the area vocational schools and cooperating districts report overall satisfaction with the area vocational school's ability to deliver quality vocational education at the secondary and post-secondary levels.
