Wisconsin Vocational Equity Leadership Cadre Support Project. FY 95. Final Report.
Riley, Linda L.
A project was developed to provide technical assistance and staff development to the Wisconsin Vocational Equity Leadership Cadre to enable them to assist local districts in meeting the equity assurances in the Carl D. Perkins Vocational and Applied Technology Education Act of 1990 as well as Wisconsin's equity goals as prescribed in state law. The staff development part of the project included 8 days of training provided to approximately 80 members of the cadre, a group of educators responsible for providing regional training for local school districts. This training was designed to build participant skills and expand their knowledge of equity issues and how they affect school climate, students' career choices, vocational training, and preparation for work and family roles. Technical assistance, resources, and information will continue to be provided on an ongoing basis and as the needs of the members dictate. The project also provided the following: assistance for the University of Wisconsin-Stout Equity Resource Center; technical assistance for schools in processing equity assessment surveys and compiling the results for local school districts; and a survey for the Bureau of Vocational Education of national and state equity professionals to ascertain future directions for Perkins funding. (Six appendixes, constituting the bulk of the document, contain the following project materials: list of cadre participants; cadre meeting agendas, evaluations, and list of handouts; resource guide--an 82-page annotated bibliography; newsletters; composite report summary; and training agenda, evaluation summary, and a list of participants.)
