Guidelines and Resources for the Development, Implementation, Operation and Evaluation of Local Advisory Committees or Councils. Final Report.
Ramey, Walter S.
The purpose of the project was to publish a State guide for local directors of vocational education that would facilitate the establishment of general vocational education advisory committees in 115 of the 130 local school divisions in Virginia by 1980. Specific objectives were to: (1) develop and publish guidelines for organizing and operating local vocational advisory committees, (2) compile a reference file of current publications--research and inservice materials on vocational advisory committees, and (3) accumulate information concerning the status of committees in the State and assess the attitudes of local schools and communities toward use of advisory committees. Detailed in the document are the procedures implemented to achieve these goals, which resulted in the publication and dissemination of "A Guide for the Organization and Operation of Local Advisory Committees for Vocational Education". The materials collected and results of a survey on local status of advisory committees provided direction for the writing of the guide. Recommendations are presented to supplement use of the guide in school districts. Appendixes include the survey instrument, tabulation of the findings, and extensive correspondence relating to review of the draft copy of the guide and comments on the completed publication.
