Development of Model Methods of Administration (MAO) for the Implementation of the Office for Civil Rights Guidelines for Vocational Education. Final Report [and] Final Report Summary.
Bouganim, Hara; And Others
To assist state vocational education administrators in the development of Methods of Administration (MOAs) describing plan for the implementation of their civil rights responsibilities, a project provided several forms of technical assistance. (March 1979 Office of Civil Rights guidelines required the formation of MOAs.) Three major activities which comprised the nine-month project were (1) development and dissemination of standards which list the required elements and provide specifications regarding MOA content, (2) delivery of technical assistance in MOA development to Georgia, Illinois, New York, Oregon, and Guam--after which the model states' MOAs were disseminated to all states, and (3) conduct of five regional workshops in February and March 1980 for all the states and outlying areas to provide information and assistance in MOA planning and preparation. Approximately 150 workshop participants included representatives from vocational education agencies as well as from national and regional federal offices. The project successfully accomplished its ultimate goal but recommendations for future projects of the same nature were made regarding technical issues, policy issues, and technical assistance to states. These include designation of a single federal contact point to which each state can turn for assistance in MOA development, expedition of the MOA approval process, provision of implementation guidelines and program review instruments, and the facilitation of communication and information dissemination at the state and federal level.
