Occupational Education Administrators' Duties/Responsibilities Survey.
Cosumnes River Coll., Sacramento, CA.
In the fall of 1976, questionnaires were mailed to 99 occupational education administrators in California community colleges in order to ascertain whether there were differences in these individual's responsibilities and job duties from college to college. Responses were received from 81 of those surveyed, a rate of 80%. Results of the survey showed: (1) slightly more than half of the administrators were employed in single-college districts; (2) two-thirds had full-time responsibility for occupational education; (3) differences in rank among the administrators were noted--60 of the respondents were deans or associate deans, 17 were assistant deans or directors, and 4 were coordinators; (4) 78 of the administrators were classified as management; (5) 47 of the administrators were formerly high school teachers; (6) 53 also taught courses in their community college, although the courses which they taught were not necessarily occupational in nature; and (7) the majority of the respondents reported the dean of instruction as their immediate supervisor. Overall, it appeared that there were some differences in the responsibilities of occupational administrators, but the primary duties of such administrators did not differ greatly. Tabular data for single and multi-college districts and a ranked list of job tasks are appended. (JDS)
