Manning, J. Dale; And Others
This report describes a project to adapt and/or develop instruments, techniques, and procedures for establishing an individual educational planning system for adult students at Salt Lake Community High School. Chapter 1 describes procedures to identify and assess existing approaches for developing individual educational plans (IEPs). It critiques and provides IEP forms of the Tooele, Cache, and Weber School Districts and Skills Center North and one developed by the State Office of Education. Chapter 2 discusses the forms and procedures developed. Nine functions the IEP should include are outlined: (1) correlations with the State Adult Education Model, (2) informal beginning counseling session, (3) initial testing, (4) evaluation of existing school credits, (5) resume of previous education and experiences, (6) aptitude and career testing, (7) ongoing counseling procedure, (8) teacher advisory system, and (9) clustering classes in area of interest. These forms are provided: Educational Plan sheet; a preliminary IEP worksheet including personal information, credits, and information about work experience and student objectives; Resume of Adult Experience; and IEP form. Chapter 3 outlines the workshop to train adult educators in use of IEP instruments, procedures, and techniques and participant evaluation of the workshop. Chapters 4 and 5 briefly address IEP system implementation and conclusions and implications derived from the project. (YLB)
