Extending the Benefits of Vocational Education to Indian Populations. Integrated Planning Package. Research and Development Series No. 183.
Minugh, Carol J.; Tiger, Miller R.
Developed for use by state vocational personnel, this integrated planning package contains five sections describing activities that combine to form a unified system for effective planning of vocational programs for American Indian populations. The first section introduces the package, overviews the other sections, discusses state agency involvement and responsibility, presents three alternative organizational structures, and provides a (one-year) time frame. The emphasis of section 2 is on integrating the Indian population into the total state plan. It provides information on four areas: potential problem areas, potential matching funds, suggested activities for inclusion in state plans, and procedures for participating in state-funded programs. Developing a communication network between and among state vocational education agencies, local vocational education programs, and Indian populations is the subject of section 3. Section 4 recommends procedures to guide a state vocational agency in planning, implementing, and utilizing a needs assessment. Topics include steering committees, survey team, community survey, publicity, and survey instruments. (Sample surveys are provided.) Abstracts of successful vocational programs are included in section 5 to assist in the development of programs that specifically address Indian population needs. In-depth studies on seven of these programs provide additional information on program curriculum, financing, staffing, planning, and implementation. (YLB)
