Handbook of Exemplary Practices in Placement and Follow-Up.
Mehallis, Mantha Vlahos
This handbook for teachers, counselors, and administrators presents exemplary practices in the use of job placement and follow-up services based on results of a survey of Florida school districts and community colleges. A description of survey methodology and the survey questionnaire, as well as a statewide profile of Florida exemplary practices based on survey results are presented in an initial section. Eight Florida school districts and community colleges (the Dade, Duval, Pinellas and Putnam county school districts, and the Florida Keys, Manatu, Santa Fe, and Valencia community colleges) are described to provide specific examples of how placement and follow-up information can be used effectively. The descriptions of exemplary practices are presented in nine topical areas, i.e., procedure for data collection and analysis, administrative decision making, employer linkage, job placement, counseling, recruitment of leavers, resource allocation, communication (feedback), and program impact (curriculum). From one to five specific examples of practice are given for each area. Recommendations for placement and follow-up drawn from the statewide survey results are listed also. The appendices list the school districts and community colleges responding to the exemplary practices questionnaire, and provide the statewide survey sample cover letters, sample student questionnaires, sample leave questionnaires, and a sample employer questionnaire.
