Administrators and Supervisors. Career Planning and Vocational Programming for Handicapped Youth.
Minugh, Carol J.; Morse, Dian
This administrator's and supervisor's manual, one in a series of nine staff development guides prepared by the Philadelphia School District, clarifies roles and responsibilities of various staff members and parents in providing programs to meet the career and vocational education needs of mildly to moderately handicapped students. Designed to be relevant to the specific needs of central and district office vocational administrators and supervisors, this manual is organized into six sections. The first section provides an overview of vocational and career education of handicapped students from the administrator's and supervisor's perspectives. Topics covered include program administration, program development plans, competency-based instruction, staff development, program monitoring and feedback, and the special education checklist for principals. This section is followed by references and information on specific role responsibilities, including a specific responsibilities grid. The last three sections of the booklet consist of a summary of administrators' responsibilities, selected readings, and an annotated bibliography. Two appendixes explain competency-based vocational instruction and vocational advisory committee duties. (KC)
