Educational Relationships Between Intermediate Units and Area Vocational Technical Schools in Pennsylvania.
Brantner, Seymour T.; And Others
On May 4, 1970, the State of Pennsylvania entered upon a new era of school administration with the passage of Act 102. This act established the Intermediate Unit (IU), which provides consultative, advisory, or education program services to school districts, as the middle echelon of a three-echelon educational system (school district, intermediate unit, and State education department). The purpose of this study was to investigate what educational relationships are now present and should be developed between the intermediate units and area vocational technical schools (AVTS) in Pennsylvania. The directors of all 29 IUs in the State and 81 educators in supervisory positions in AVTSs were surveyed to find the relationship of the IUs to the AVTSs, specifically with respect to the provision of seven service areas required by law, and opinions as to the desirability of providing these services. The response rate was over 80 percent and the responses are tabulated and discussed. Two bibliographies, the questionnaires, the responses, and selected comments are included in the appendixes. (DS)
