Planning, Design and Implementation: A Year in Review. Annual Report. Strengthening Local Administration of Vocational Education Through Design, Implementation and Evaluation of Alternative Delivery Systems for Use by Coordinating Councils.
Mills, Joe D.; And Others
The purpose of the Florida Coordinating Council Development Project is to further develop the processes and procedures used by community college district coordinating councils so that all school districts and community colleges can cooperatively plan, implement, and evaluate an appropriate delivery system for vocational education, adult general education, and community instructional services. The project is to conduct a comprehensive study of the status of local coordinating councils to determine progress in role definitions, scope of authority, and operational procedures; design model operating procedures appropriate to each council; implement the designed model operating procedures in pilot settings; determine the effectiveness of each alternative design; and disseminate validated operating procedures. The milestones of the first year of operation that are discussed here are the selection of the six pilot sites; the selection of the project staff; the completion of the Status Study; the preparation of a questionnaire and accompanying resource guide to be used by the councils to determine the scope and content of their operating procedures; the development of model operating procedures from the answers to the questionnaire; and the administration and results of the first major evaluation instrument, the Process-Progress Inventory. Appendixes supply supplemental information. (Author/IRT)
