Procedures Manual for Handicapped and Disadvantaged Programs.
Winstead, Annie S.
The manual is intended to help South Carolina school systems administer programs for handicapped and disadvantaged persons enrolled in vocational education programs. The manual focuses on: legal mandates; how students are identified; how students are assessed; the assessment instruments utilized; services that can be provided; how student progress can be charted; and placement requirements. A section on legal mandates notes key requirements of such federal and state laws and regulations as the Carl D. Perkins Act of 1984 and the South Carolina Board of Education Administrative Provisions for Handicapped and Disadvantaged Programs. Identification of students is covered next with information on outreach, referrals, placement, and records. Vocational assessment is discussed in terms of who is responsible, who to assess, when to assess, what to assess, how to assess, use of assessment data, and assessment instruments. Vocational/job training analysis, vocational education services including personnel services and support centers, and monitoring and evaluating student progress are briefly considered. Appended are sample referral, interview, evaluation, and other forms as well as a list of resources (written and audiovisual, and support agencies and personnel). (DB)
