Status Report of Interagency Linkages at the State Level. Vocational Education Models for Linking Agencies Serving the Handicapped.
Tindall, Lloyd W.; And Others
A product of the Project on Vocational Education Models for Linking Agencies Serving the Handicapped, this status report consists of group consenses and individual response worksheets pertaining to the status of linkages among agencies serving handicapped vocational students. (The above-mentioned project is designed to help the states meet the needs of students at the secondary, postsecondary, and adult levels by examining those components of interagency linkages that are necessary to ensure accessibility and delivery of supportive services to handicapped people in vocational education.) Discussed in an overview of the project are its goals and major activities and accomplishments (state participation, advisory committee input, model state selection, and the model plan goal). In a summary of the group consensus at project-sponsored state team meetings, various factors affecting and effecting linkages are covered, including administrative structure, staff positions, coordination concerns, advocacy and advisory groups, internal political issues, and legislative committees. Individual team member responses to worksheets concerning agency linkages are also summarized. (A related description of agencies and organizations and a handbook on developing effective linking strategies are available separately--see note.) (MN)
