The Florida Adult Literacy Plan.
Florida State Dept. of Education, Tallahassee. Div. of Vocational, Adult, and Community Education.
This document presents the Adult Literacy Plan for the state of Florida. Section 1 provides a rationale for the plan. Section 2 sets forth goals and objectives. The statutory intent is described in Section 3, which focuses on the Florida Model Literacy Program Act of 1987 (FMLPA). Section 4 presents a statement of the problem. It provides background information on population growth, the reported level of educational attainment, and economic development trends; describes special populations that should be of critical concern in efforts to address the literacy requirements; and outlines factors that complicate the planning and development of strategies for Florida residents who lack literacy skills. Section 5 provides guidance for state and local responsibilities. The 7 mandatory components required by the FMLPA are presented. Indicators of compliance for each are provided. An outline lists strategies for consideration. It is divided into two major parts: state planning and local planning. Each part has four primary sections: marketing, student motivation, delivery of literacy services, and accountability. Section 6 contains a sample outline and a timetable for a local literacy plan. Seven references are listed. Appendixes include 1980 census data; flowchart of literacy training services; excerpts from Project Independence; and relevant statutes. (YLB)
