Occupational Education for Disadvantaged and Handicapped Persons. Bulletin No. 40-1273.
Illinois State Board of Vocational Education and Rehabilitation, Springfield. Div. of Vocational and Technical Education.
The bulletin is intended to assist local educational agency administrators in developing and/or strengthening and expanding occupational services for disadvantaged and handicapped persons as required by Federal and State legislation and outlined in the Illinois State plan. The publication opens with a discussion of the criteria for the identification of handicapped and disadvantaged persons. To help local school districts implement their programs, examples are presented of services and program components which are not usually provided in regular occupational programs. Aspects covered are modification of regular programs, (curriculum and instructional materials, scheduling modification, and supplemental educational services); special occupational programs, staffing; facilities; and a formal annual evaluation of the total occupational program. The fourth chapter explains State requirements for preparing local district one- and five-year plans for occupation education, as they apply to planning and reporting of Programs for handicapped and disadvantaged persons. The final portion provides guidelines for local educational agency recordkeeping in compliance with Federal legislation and the policies of the State Board of Vocational Education and Rehabilitation.
