JTPA 8% Education and Coordination Grant Annual Report for PY 1989-90. Report to the Governor and Wisconsin Jobs Council.
Wisconsin State Board of Vocational, Technical, and Adult Education, Madison.
Job Training Partnership Act (JTPA) 8 Percent Education and Coordination Grant Funds were intended by Congress to bring education as a full partner into the employment and training system. In Wisconsin, these funds were split equally between the Wisconsin Board of Vocational, Technical, and Adult Education (WBVTAE) and the Department of Public Instruction (DPI). Twenty-eight projects were funded in three JTPA program activities: occupational classroom training, other classroom training, and other training. In response to the 1988-89 Program Plan, the WBVTAE JTPA staff participated in meetings and conducted conferences to give leadership to state and local employment and training activities and to coordinate state and federal resources. Ten projects for occupational skills for targeted populations and three Minority Youth Initiative Programs were funded. In addition, the VTAE districts participated in the original three pilot 1988 Job Centers, and the Literacy 2000 Task Force identified the dimensions of adult illiteracy and recommended strategies to address the problem. Four program priority areas were identified for the 8 percent training funds: skill training for target populations, minority youth initiative, Job Centers, and economic development. (Appendixes, amounting to over two-thirds of the report, include 1989-90 individual project abstracts by priority and results and a program plan for 1990-91.) (YLB)
