Development of Cooperative Planning for Technical-Vocational Programs.
Cisco Junior Coll., TX.; Ranger Junior Coll., TX.
During the past decade vocational-technical education in Texas has grown so rapidly that now attention must be given to enrollments, employment projections, and more efficient utilization of the limited resources available. Cisco and Ranger Junior Colleges serve essentially the same population and a plan for close cooperation and coordination is needed to avoid duplication of programs and also to meet community needs not being served. To assist in planning, this study was conducted to explore students' occupational interests and to identify their employment opportunities after completion of postsecondary vocational-technical training. Student vocational interests were determined by a survey in the high schools of the counties included in the study. An employer survey was made to indicate the employment opportunities. Results of the surveys and the questionnaires used are presented. The report suggests that the two junior colleges arrange, in cooperation with other postsecondary and with the secondary schools, to develop a master plan for utilizing their resources to provide the technical-vocational programs needed in the service area.
