A Report of Phase I: Master Plan for Public Service Occupational Education.
California Community Colleges, Sacramento. Office of the Chancellor.
Designed to provide direction for new and existing programs offered by community colleges in public service occupational education, phase one of the master plan focused on defining the following areas: public service occupational education, present status of programs, problems in articulation, and a conceptual framework for a public service master plan. A consortium of 17 colleges was established, and representatives participating in a series of workshops developed a functional definition of public service occupational education. A study of the status of programs revealed the lack of a consistent framework for the organization and supervision of programs, ambiguity in terminology, and a wide diversity in program designation. Additional concerns were the need for developing articulation agreements for the continuation of education in baccalaureate programs without repetition of courses and the need for intercollege communication. Suggested recommendations to be incorporated into the master plan identified tasks to be accomplished in later phases of the project. Appendixes contain the names of consortium colleges, designations used for public service occupations, and CID (Classification of Instructional Disciplines) classification for public service education.
