Implementing Long-Range Planning for Vocational Education.
Hamlin, Roger E.; And Others
Test application and implementation of techniques and methods developed in the planning model, A Policy Information System for Vocational Education, are described in this report. (The computer planning model and policy information system designed for use in planning at the local level brings variables of student interest, manpower demand, enrollment projections, costs per program, placement, and other factors into a form so that they can be utilized to help administrators in long-range planning and decisionmaking.) A section of the report is devoted to each of the three sites in which the planning model was tested (Grand Rapids, Flint, and Battle Creek, Michigan), and the various problems and difficulties that occurred during the pilot test of the model are described. The implementation process is detailed, and differences between sites in organizational structure and test procedures are compared. Conclusions and recommendations are offered regarding the implementation process, and the model in general, which can be applied to the use of the model in other sites. (BL)
