Project: MOBILITY. Introduction and Summary.
Fresno City Coll., CA.
This report summarizes a project designed to develop vocational educational programs and services for educationally disadvantaged and physically handicapped students at Fresno City College, California. The introduction provides an overview of the two phases of the project: phase I, a needs assessment; and phase II, curriculum development and coordination of services for five vocational programs (automotive mechanics, electronics, licensed vocational nursing, registered nursing, and office occupations). The second section presents two sets of materials: (1) a mission profile (flow chart) of the major functions proposed to be performed during phase II; (2) and the chronicle (specific steps) and summary of the functions actually performed during phase II. It also provides a time-line schedule showing the time that was required to complete each function. The third section identifies problems encountered during project implementation, how they were solved and recommendations for avoiding similar problems in future implementations. The final section contains an article titled "Towards Educational Responsiveness to Society's Needs: A Tentative Model Achieving the Independent Survival Point". This article describes a utility model based upon three possible referents for defining educational needs. (Reports on the needs assessment, curriculum analysis, guidance programs, and program management, equity, planning, and evaluation are presented in documents CE 019 815-825.) (JH)
