A Field Study of the Role of the County Coordinator of Vocational Education.
Valencia, Carlos F.; Coy, Michael N.
The purpose of the study was to help define the role of the county vocational education coordinator by surveying the opinions of professional educators. The following five population groups representing the 31 counties in the central region of California were chosen to respond to a mailed survey instrument: county vocational education coordinators/directors, regional occupational program coordinators/directors, district superintendents, principals, and vocational education teachers (department heads). A total of 393 individuals out of 544 who were contacted returned the survey, which elicited responses concerning: rank order given 12 vocational education program functions, the improvement needed for each function, and the agency/person who should have primary responsibility for assisting school staff and district staff with the 12 functions. The tabulated findings are analyzed by groups, county class, county, and combined into composite results. Mean rank scores, mean improvement scores, average frequencies, and percentages were computed on the data. The survey produced 10 major conclusions and seven general recommendations related to the role of the county coordinator and the 12 functions. Appended are a list of school districts within the counties surveyed, definitions of the 12 program functions, and a list of county classes. (Author/MS)
