Summer Occupational/Vocational Program Report. Fiscal Year 1991.
Matz, William A.
This report describes the summer occupational/vocational programs held in each of three vocational school districts and it compiles activities in the regular school districts in Delaware for fiscal year 1991. The three vocational-technical school district programs profiled are those of Kent County, Sussex County, and New Castle County. For each county program and for the state as a whole, information is provided on program activities, evaluation, commendations, and recommendations for improvement. Some of the program activities offered by the vocational-technical districts included 10- to 14-day exploratory programs providing hands-on experiences in 15-24 occupational areas, participation of gifted and talented students in an exploratory program, a 6-week employer-based work experience program, a "Teens'n Technology '90" program, and participation of staff members in computer training. The regular school districts provided employer-based work experience programs serving 1,226 students. Districts were commended for offering programs designed to meet the needs of the students and for staff enthusiasm. Some recommendations for improvement included developing programs in ample time to provide for student recruitment, and increasing funding. (KC)
