Preliminary Three-Year Plan for Adult Basic Education Staff Development.
Kincaid, Harry V.; Rink, Dan L.
U. S. Office of Education funding has been provided to Region Nine for fiscal year 1973 for an Adult Basic Education (ABE) staff development effort, aimed at improving the delivery of adult education services to meet target population needs and Federal program goals through preservice and inservice training of personnel engaged in adult education programs. The three-year regional plan establishes and coordinates a program of regional staff development activities to complement the State and territorial activities. Problem areas and training needs identified are: individual and cultural diversity of ABE population, lack of ABE career orientation, teacher qualifications, student turnover, assessment of student programs, coordination, participation of colleges and universities, leadership growth and development, counseling, and regional diversity. Existing staff and staff development activities of the region are considered, and the regional plan is outlined in terms of goals, components and activities, resource, and budget. The remaining 60 pages contain the staff development plans for the States in Region Nine: Arizona, California, Hawaii, and Nevada. For each, an overview is provided, needs are discussed, and objectives are listed. Plans for remaining territories in the Region are being prepared. (AG)
