Implementation of a State-Wide Guidance Program with Emphasis on Counseling, Placement, and Follow-Up for Selected Target Groups. Final Report.
Gentry, Don K.; And Others
A 2-year project to focus on diverse approaches to placement and followup in vocational education within Indiana included seven sub-projects funded to local educational agencies across the State and targeted to specific problems. Products of the seven sub-projects were developed to provide adaptability to secondary and postsecondary schools throughout the State. Project approaches included such activities as (1) searching what other States are doing in placement and followup and developing Indiana models that may be used Statewide to assist youth in becoming more employable, (2) assisting the school corporations in attaining 100% placement--placement into further training or placement on the job, and (3) assisting vocational administrators with a how-to manual to become leaders in program accountability. The products of the seven projects include a data and information bank to serve as a basis for a placement component in an area vocational education center (many of the informational materials appropriate for bilingual families), a longitudinal in-school and out-of-school data system, a manual for conducting followup studies, a handbook for conducting cost effectiveness studies of local vocational education programs, documents providing results of a national review of exemplary postsecondary and secondary placement and followup practices, followup materials and guidelines appropriate for conducting followup studies of postsecondary school vocational education dropouts (including computerized techniques for processing data), and a standardized followup instrument and a system for data interpretation (with potential for a uniform State followup program). The report includes statement of the problems, priority areas, strategies, analysis, findings, conclusions and recommendations, and evaluation plan for the primary project and the seven sub-projects. A financial statement is also included. (HD)
