Resource Vocational Program. Salt Lake City School District. 1979-80 Summary Report.
Salt Lake City School District, UT.
This summary evaluation report is a short synopsis of the first-year activities of the Resource Vocational Program, which provided career development and vocational education--employability development--services in the least restrictive environment to a group of mild to moderate handicapped youth. A brief description outlines scope and four major components of this program, which was located at two high schools in the Salt Lake City School District: career awareness, employment skills, vocational training, and placement. Other sections discuss identification of clients served and student characteristics and describe programs of a similar nature that are operating locally and throughout the country. A report from an independent internal evaluator describing the function of the program is summarized. The concluding section contains a brief summary statement highlighting the program's major accomplishments, a future perspective where problems are, and programming strategies to resolve these problems for the next operating year. Appendixes, amounting to over one-half of the report, include (1) definitions of handicapping conditions; (2) a report on the structure and changes of the program, whose title was changed to Special Vocational Services Project for the next operation year; (3) the independent internal evaluator's report in its entirety; and (4) participating student characteristics in detail.
