Research Study on Planning for Connecticut Regional Vocational-Technical Schools. Final Report.
University Research Inst. of Connecticut, Inc., Wallingford.
To help determine the feasibility of establishing in any Connecticut town new regional vocational-technical schools that would not produce any adverse effects on existing schools, this research study presents a methodology and computerized program by which these assessments may be made. Part One discusses the need for this type of methodology and its important characteristics. Part Two describes the concepts and parameters, including summary presentations of relevant statewide data and the procedural approach to determine the impact of a new regional vocational-technical school upon enrollments in existing regional vocational-technical schools. Part Three presents four illustrative case of proposed location areas and their projected impact on existing schools to demonstrate the implementation of the new methodology. Part Four presents detailed consideration of the various factors within the new enrollment projection methodology, their limitations and accuracy, and also considers potential improvements to the methodology through improved data collection and analyses. Summary conclusions and recommendations resultant from this study are discussed in Part Five. (Author/EC)
