Public Relations Guide: Sex Equity in Vocational Education.
Bond, Jean, Comp.
This public relations unit is one of a series of guides developed to aid school administrators and teachers in understanding and creating an environment that will allow students equal educational opportunities. Part of such awareness is knowing about the availability of courses and activities offered, as well as informing parents and potential employers about student success stories. The guide provides suggestions and examples of ways to work with the local media and the local advisory council, and encourages each school district to develop a public information plan in order to create a positive image. The five sections of the guide contain information on evaluating the present public relations program, preparing a public relations calendar, planning the program, publicity and activities to be carried out in the school and in the community, and using an advisory council. Activities suggested include creating brochures and news releases, conducting career fairs, setting up bulletin boards, leading tours of vocational facilities, producing plays and pageants, holding workshops and open houses, and using radio and television to create a favorable image of vocational education offerings. Samples of articles, news releases, posters, and brochures are included in the booklets. (KC)
