State of Hawaii Annual Accountability Report for Vocational Education: For the Academic Year 1980-81.
Hawaii State Dept. of Education, Honolulu. Office of the Director for Vocational Education.
Designed to comply with federal accountability requirements, this report presents information on Hawaii's high school and community college vocational programs, students, and finances for the 1980-81 academic year. Each of the report's six sections corresponds to specific legislative requirements. Section 1 contains discussions and data correlating labor demand with occupational training opportunities. Section 2 compares actual and projected enrollments in terms of normal program capacities and contrasts expenditures with allocation figures. Section 3 focuses on summative program evaluations, which take place annually for each secondary program and every 5 years for community college programs. Program structures, objectives, and outcomes are discussed and evaluative data are provided for 3 vocational programs offered by most high schools and for the 14 community college programs evaluated in 1980-81. Section 4 reviews the services provided for special populations, such as women, minorities, handicapped, disadvantaged, and limited English speakers. In section 5, the methodology used by the state to determine program priorities and distribute funds is examined. Finally, section 6 explains the State Board for Vocational Education's reaction to the State Advisory Council on Vocational Education's recommendations. Appendices discuss the annual Employer Satisfaction Survey, Comprehensive Employment and Training Act programs, and results toward achieving sex equity in vocational programs. (AYC)
