Texas A and M Univ., College Station. Dept. of Educational Administration.
The second of two volumes on research undertaken to enhance the ability of superintendents in public school districts without vocational directors to administer vocational programs effectively, this document is an indepth look at the study, which is overviewed in volume I. The beginning chapters present background material on the purpose and need for the research: (1) To determine the tasks which must be performed and the administrative functions employed for their accomplishment, and (2) to present alternative model modules for use in preservice and inservice training of superintendents to accomplish those tasks. Methods and procedures, which included interviews with superintendents, principals, and vocational teachers and counselors to identify the tasks and methods of accomplishing them, are then dealt with in detail. These are followed by an extensive presentation of the findings and conclusions with supporting tables and figures given in the body of the document as well as in the appendix. In addition, 24 module models are shown, one for each of the 24 tasks previously identified as being important to public school superintendents who are also administering vocational programs. Each includes rationale, goals, objectives, and pre-assessment and post-assessment design guide. (BL)
