Strengthening Local Administration of Vocational Education through Design, Implementation and Evaluation of Alternative Delivery Systems for Use by Coordinating Councils. Final Report. Volume One.
Mills, Joe D.; And Others
The purpose of this project was to design six models for the operation of vocational and adult education and community instructional services coordinating councils that would be adaptable to all 28 Florida community colleges. Surveys were made of all 28 councils and from the analyses six representative sites were selected in which to develop and test each model. The six pilot councils were then compared with councils not in the project on effectiveness criteria taken from the State Board Rules to determine how effectively the councils operate. It was concluded that councils are more effective in terms of fulfilling their State Board of Education Rule-designated responsibilities when they develop and implement an operating model stating council objectives and organizational procedures. Appendixes A and B, the first two of eight appendixes to this final report, comprise 129 of the 152 pages in this volume. Appendix A contains the project flow chart and a questionnaire and resource guide intended to aid the coordinating councils to develop new procedures or to refine existing procedures. Appendix B contains the project evaluation plan, information on the Process-Progress Inventory (PPI) (which is developed from the stated goals, objectives, and strategies of each council's model to help councils establish a systematic examination of their objectives), the PPI questionnaire to facilitators, and the responses of six council's to the PPI. (Appendixes C through H are bound in a separate volume.) (HD)
