Peifer, John E.; Cook, Lynda A.
The introduction to this report outlines the Planned Educational Program (PEP) goals for institutionalized juveniles who are likely to return to public schools, and for those likely to enter the work force directly. The elements of the PEP process are described in the following section, and methods used to organize and conduct a PEP evaluation are enumerated. Limitations on drawing final conclusions from the report are offered. The next section contains institutional summaries for seven Pennsylvania PEP programs. Each summary includes administrative observations, needs assessment and student observations, curriculum and instructional observations, commendations, and recommendations. Conclusions and recommendations regarding the interviewing techniques used and the evaluation process are provided in the final section. An inservice training agenda for evaluators, and an interviewer evaluation packet, including a program evaluation model and interview forms, are appended. (LLL)
