Gary, Robert R.
This project report includes a brief narrative, the model placement and followup system developed for statewide implementation in vocational education programs, and an employer survey. The guide for the establishment and operation of a school-based placement and followup system is divided into two sections: general information and operational procedures. Part 1 provides the history of its development, code of ethics, definitions, objectives, and expected outcomes. Part 2 describes the procedures for the placement and followup components and provides a time and event schedule and all forms needed for system implementation and maintenance. The revised manual has four additional sections. Part 3, on the system management plan, describes all procedures and includes a flow chart model, vertical line flow model, and task identification chart for each of the subsystems. In part 4, work readiness program (sample materials), the job clinic and other phases of the program are discussed. Part 5, discussing the regional implementation plan, gives guidelines, including timelines, calendar of activities, suggestions for leadership teams, and inservice objectives and agenda. Part 6, plan for program improvement, provides an orientation to the basics of developing and implementing a formal procedure for program assessment and revision. The employer survey summarizes data from students' employers concerning level of vocational training, work attitude, and comparison with other employees. (YLB)
