Connections for the Future through Vocational Technical 2 + 2 Programs. Annual Report, April 1989.
Portland Area Vocational-Technical Education Consortium, OR.
The Portland Area Vocational Technical Education Consortium (PAVTEC) was created to enhance and strengthen the working partnerships between Portland Community College and local high schools in order to provide high quality, articulated vocational technical programs. PAVTEC's third annual report highlights activities which have added to the momentum of the 2 + 2 high school and community college articulation effort. The report considers the past, present, and future of the consortium; recognition and effects of the project beyond the membership of PAVTEC; project financing from the Carl D. Perkins Vocational Education Act and other sources; and budgets and expenditures from 1986 to 1990. In addition, the report reviews PAVTEC activities, including information on program management and organization, efforts to meet the needs of handicapped and disadvantaged students, the selection of a 2 + 2 demonstration project, the development of articulated vocational programs and a 2 + 2 + 2 model curriculum, staff development, forecasting, counseling, marketing, strategic planning, student tracking, evaluation, and articulation incentives. The report also offers data on student and district participation and provides an outline of PAVTEC's three-year plan. After discussing future plans to institutionalize articulation, curriculum development, and funding, the report summarizes the accomplishments of PAVTEC in the areas of instruction, faculty involvement, information dissemination, project promotion, and communication, coordination, and management. Attachments to the report include a list of PAVTEC Council members; a list of proposals approved for articulation projects; materials on provisions for special needs students; details on funding; copies of pertinent legislation; a list of programs funded through the Oregon Workforce 2000 Act; a matrix showing articulated courses; procedures for recording grades; and a sample project newsletter.
