Organizing to Work with CETA. Information Series No. 224.
Jacobson, Thomas J.
This paper traces Comprehensive Employment and Training Act (CETA) vocational education coordination activities that have occurred in the past and provides suggestions for activities that can be pursued at the local school district level to help school districts participate in the funding opportunities available under CETA. It is designed for school-based and community-based employment and training service deliverers and decision makers. Section 1 provides a review of literature related to CETA/vocational education coordination and addresses topics such as accomplishments to date, problems and issues in coordination, effective mechanisms for facilitating coordination, formal versus informal coordination, and resources for learning coordination. Sections 2 and 3 provide specific guidelines for a process which local educational agencies can use to organize both internally (section 2) to prepare to coordinate with CETA and externally (section 3) to seek and manage subcontracts with CETA prime sponsors. Appended material includes an overview of the CETA legislation. (LRA)
