Planning for Vocational Education Accessibility. A Local Planning System for Secondary and Postsecondary Programs.
Rice, Eric; And Others
This guidebook is the first in a series of eight booklets included in a planning system for improving local secondary and postsecondary program and facility accessibility. The introductory section addresses questions about how to use the materials and when to use the planning system. Other chapters are allocated to each of the five steps in the planning system: (1) identifying barriers, (2) establishing priorities and goals, (3) generating strategies, (4) selecting strategies, and (5) removing barriers. Within each chapter the different techniques available for conducting that step are described and compared. In addition, two continuous examples are developed through each chapter to demonstrate how decisions about each step might be made in typical educational units. The guide also contains a copy of the planning record, the chart, and the barrier removal schedule. Most booklets in the series contain self-study exercises. The other seven (resource documents) are also available through ERIC--see note. (LRA)
