Kentucky Vocational Staff Industry Exchange Program Handbook.
Kentucky State Dept. of Education, Frankfort. Bureau of Vocational Education.
The Staff Industry Exchange Program is a state-operated and funded program for all vocational teachers and administrators in Kentucky. The program is designed to enable vocational teachers and administrators to gain short-term, up-to-date work experience. As a result of a study of the program, this guide was developed to facilitate program improvements. The guide is intended to help vocational administrators and teachers to specifically identify the steps and procedures essential for a quality program of staff exchange. The guide is divided into five major phases: (1) getting involved in the staff exchange program--eligible personnel, self-assessment, writing specific objectives; (2) applying for staff exchange, including planning a work schedule and securing approval; (3) the staff exchange work experience--daily life on the job; (4) staff exchange outcomes--implementing staff exchange work experience into the instructional program; and (5) evaluation of results of staff exchange activities. An index and a glossary appear at the beginning of the guide, while all suggested and required forms for staff exchange are included in the appendix. Also included is a list of the duties and responsibilities for people who carry out program activities. (KC)
