Vocational Education Administration Handbook.
Ryals, Karen, Ed.; Doherty, Susan Sloan, Ed.
This handbook for vocational administrators presents an overview of vocational education programs, services, and administrative structures in Alaska. The manual contains three parts. The first, brief section introduces secondary vocational education and lists its enabling legislation. The second part presents a detailed overview of vocational education in Alaska. Topics covered include the mission of the Department of Education in vocational education, goals, principles, financial support, the Division of Adult and Vocational Education (organizational structure), and vocational education services (such as program application, curriculum, evaluation, technical assistance, equity, disabilities, career guidance and counseling, rural students, on-the-job training, student organizations, compliance, management information system, state plan, grants management, the Alaska Career Information System, and teacher certification). The last part of the guide outlines the local vocational education administrator's role. Topics covered include responsibilities, standards, program development (including planning, advisory council, needs asssessment, personnel qualifications and development, equal opportunity, exceptional persons, curriculum, facilities, evaluation, student organizations, guidance and placement, management information system, and state aid), and requirements for meeting standards. Appendixes, which make up half of the document, contain sample forms, resources, definitions, bibliography, and regulations for vocational education programs. (KC)
