The Improvement of Occupational Education in Maryland: A Progress Report, July 1, 1975-June 30, 1976.
Maryland State Board for Community Colleges, Annapolis.
This report details the progress and activities during fiscal year 1976 of five projects designed by the Maryland State Board for Community Colleges to further improve the quality of postsecondary occupational education in Maryland community colleges. Project I was designed to improve articulation of occupational programs at the secondary and postsecondary levels. Project II aimed at developing a management information system for occupational programs. Project III involved implementation of a system for the evaluation of occupational programs. Projects IV and V were merged with the intent of improving the quality of orientation, advisement, counseling, career development, and placement of occupational students. This report presents summaries of each project and recommendations for future activities. Based upon the success of the first two years of project funding, the State Department of Education has increased the funding level to $100,000 for 1977. A large percentage of these funds are anticipated to flow directly to the community colleges as they seek to implement project objectives. Appended are additional project materials. (JDS)
