Coordination of Supportive Services for Vocational Education Students in Rural Areas. Final Report, Institute I.
Norton, Robert E.; And Others
The coordination institute was planned to focus on 3 major purposes; (1) participants were to learn additional skills needed for planning and conducting effective and efficient supportive service programs; (2) task force groups were to review and synthesize the ideas presented so as to recommend the most promising new or existing strategies for coordinating supportive service programs; and (3) participants were to develop a tentative plan of action for improving coordination of supportive services in their own agencies and/or communities. To accomplish the purposes and objectives established, various activities were used to enrich the understandings and experiences of the participants. Activities included formal lectures, informal presentations, 2 symposia, discussion groups, a demonstration meeting, and individual and small group assignments. Institute participants were made aware of the importance of providing supportive services to students, especially disadvantaged and handicapped students, and were provided with techniques for initiating or improving such programs. In addition, the institute resulted in 5 task-group reports on recommended strategies for improving the coordination of supportive services and the development of realistic plans of action. (JH)
