Guidelines for Continuing Education Satellite Programs Held at Sponsoring School Districts.
Palmer, Barry H.
Information about the satellite programs offered by Lehigh County Community College (LCCC) in Pennsylvania is presented, along with guidelines for implementing a program of noncredit courses in local school districts. The initial sections of the paper provide background information on LCCC; explain that the guidelines were developed by LCCC in response to a request from a district superintendent for a program of courses to be housed in that district to serve adults within its taxing municipality; explain changes that were made since the original creation of the guidelines; and discuss LCCC's experiences with teacher and coordinator selection. The guidelines for continuing education programs are presented next, covering registration procedures; fee establishment and collection; responsibilities of the school district, college, and students; personnel policies regarding instructors and the program coordinator; criteria for program continuation; the responsibilities of the program coordinator (e.g., to perform needs assessments, assist in course development, recruit instructional staff, and assume responsibility for registration and scheduling); and direct and indirect costs assumed by the college and the sponsoring school district. Appendices include a coordinator's checklist, and instructor and course evaluation forms. (AYC)
