Staff Development Manual for Vocational Personnel.
Georgia State Dept. of Education, Atlanta. Office of Vocational Education.
This manual for use by vocational administrators, local system staff development coordinators, and teacher educators describes the state staff development program for vocational personnel, including rationale, structure, and procedures for such programs. It is also designed to establish an organized channel of communication for disseminating information about new and existing programs to all affected personnel and to describe procedures and requirements for receiving staff development unit (SDU) credit. The first section describes the Georgia State Vocational Personnel Development Plan. Areas covered are organizational structure, delivery of services, typical programs, needs assessment, student goals, educational improvements, and program format and abstracts. Section 2 focuses on processes and procedures for acquiring SDU credit. It looks at required forms, local educational agency approval of participants, completion of preparation phase, implementation of educational improvements, on-the-job performance phase, qualifications of evaluations, request for certification credit, and the State Vocational In-service Conference. The SDU process is then summarized. Section 3 lists responsibilities for obtaining credits of the participant, instructor, evaluator(s), supervisor, and State Vocational Personnel Development Coordinator. Appendixes, amounting to over one-half of the manual, include the SDU credit approval process, summary list of Vocational Personnel Development Programs, and sample forms. (YLB)
