Single Parent/Adult Homemaker Re-Entry Program. Annual Report.
Ashland Community Coll., KY.
The Single Parent/Adult Homemaker Reentry Program at Ashland Community College (Kentucky) was developed to meet the training needs of 40 eligible persons by enrolling them in vocational-technical programs at the college. Students received financial support for tuition, books, child care, and transportation; academic and personal counseling; supportive services; and help in setting realistic personal goals. During the 1986-87 academic year, 66 persons were enrolled in vocational-technical programs. An increase in the number of Pell Grants allowed for an increase in the participants supported. In addition, four persons enrolled in a part-time college program. As a result of the program, 6 persons graduated from 2-year technical programs, with 4 of them obtaining employment; 42 continued in the vocational-technical program for fall 1987; 10 were not successful in completing the program; 3 completed the part-time college program successfully, with 2 employed; and 1 person was unsuccessful in the college program. The program was judged to be very successful and was recommended to be continued, with some improvements, for future years. (Supplemental materials appended to the project report include monthly newsletters, an evaluation summary, an orientation schedule, publicity releases, and a program application.) (KC)
