Monitoring Implementation of the 1976 Vocational Education Amendments.
This publication contains a guide and set of five questionnaires designed to help determine whether the Vocational Education Act Amendments of 1976 have had an impact on the community. (The 1976 Amendments require recipients of federal funds to eliminate sex discrimination and sex stereotyping from their programs and provide specific resources.) The guide describes the forms and discusses conducting a monitoring project. Other topics include identifying respondents, analyzing findings, and sharing the report. These five forms are enclosed: (1) cover sheet for local educational agencies (school districts); (2) cover sheet for schools; (3) (interview) questionnaire for administrators; (4) student interview, including one part for all students, a second part for students enrolled in vocational programs traditional for their sex, and a third for nontraditional students; and (5) questionnaire for counselors and teachers who teach courses which traditionally enrolled only males or females or in which more than 80% of the students are of one sex. Other materials include a description of provisions of the regulations in the 1976 Amendments relating to equal access to vocational education and cover letters to accompany the materials. (YLB)
