During the 1992-1993 school year, vocational/occupational education in Hawaii took place primarily at 39 secondary schools, 7 community colleges, and the Employment Training Center. Training was provided in the following generic skill areas: agriculture/aquaculture, business, construction, electrical/electronic, technical/graphic, mechanical, and personal/public service. Integrated efforts have been stressed in such areas as academic-vocational, school-work, and secondary-postsecondary. Efforts were also made to meet the mandates stipulated in the 1990 Perkins Act. Included among these efforts were the following: curriculum upgrading, inservice training for vocational and academic instructors, guidance and counseling, remedial instruction, tech prep, supplementary services for special populations (including single parents, displaced homemakers, single pregnant women, criminal offenders in corrections institutions, women, racial minority group members, disabled persons, and individuals with limited English proficiency). Program evaluation, research dissemination, and coordination activities were also conducted to meet Perkins Act mandates. Respondents to the 1993-94 Employer Satisfaction Survey were generally positive regarding Hawaii's vocational education programs/activities. Employers' greatest concerns were for basic skills competencies required for employment in semiskilled positions. Some employers called for programs in Hawaiiana, conversational Japanese, and hospitality industry awareness skills. (Fourteen tables/charts are included. Appended is a statistical summary of Hawaii's postsecondary vocational enrollments as of fall 1992. Secondary data were unable to be summarized in this format and thus are included in the text.) (MN)
