Handbook of Administrative Policies and Procedures for Directors of Adult Basic Education in Massachusetts.
The purpose of the handbook is to simplify the routine business of beginning and/or operating an Adult Basic Education (ABE) Program. It describes in some detail the planning of an ABE program and deals with: the demographic survey of the population; the creation of an advisory board; the determination of the educational needs of the community; the choice of program; the design of the program. In the general areas of the program and its goals; the priorities, regulations, and conditions under which the program will operate; and the responsibilities which local education agencies assume in conducting programs, it briefly deals with such topics as: tuition and fees, non-English speaking students, curriculum and instruction, teacher training, program director, guidance and counseling, testing, reporting and evaluating, and budgetary requirements. It offers detailed discussions of various aspects of program operation, including: finance, evaluation, recruiting, certificates and diplomas, preservice and inservice staff development, cooperative ventures, community communications. Finally it covers filling out regular reports, including: program proposal, monthly statement of expenditures, professional staff qualification, organization report of classes, monthly student attendance forms, annual program report; annual expenditure report, and sample forms. Seven appendixes comprise one-third of the handbook. (JR)
