Preliminary Long-Range Planning Model.
Hamlin, Roger E.; And Others
One of 10 publications from a long-range vocational education planning project, this planning model is a boiled-down version of the complete computer based system presented in "Policy Information System Computer Program." It has been reduced to 50 pages of step-by-step procedures and fill-in-the-blank forms for use in teaching an administration the entire planning process of projecting the need, supply, and cost of vocational education programs offered by a single district or agency. Only a single method for estimating each set of projected figures in this planning process is contained in this model. The components covered are base enrollment projections, student interest, labor market demand, program enrollment, program teaching staff requirements, instructional staff costs, program capital costs, and program consumables costs. The model is designed to operate in 1-year increments to a maximum of five years, and the provision is made for combining the component summaries to obtain a unified view of the program outlook. (If alternative methods of projecting costs are desired, the related documents are recommended.) (BL)
