This document is intended to aid those in Texas doing joint planning of vocational and technical education programs with programs conducted under the Job Training Partnership Act (JTPA), the Adult Education Act, Chapter I of the Education Consolidation and Improvement Act, the Education of the Handicapped Act, the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, and apprenticeship training programs. The document is the result of an assessment of the impact of two regional workshops that were held in 1987-88 and 1988-89 to inform postsecondary personnel of the need for and process of joint planning. Section 1 provides a list of programs, services, and activities that were in place in 1988-89 as a result of the workshop conducted early in 1988. Twelve jointly planned programs for at-risk youth and hard-to-serve adults and those exclusively for hard-to-serve adults are described. Provided are contact person, program goals, program description, and evaluation information. Section 2 provides a listing and brief description of programs, services, and activities that have been planned and are using or expect to be using multiple resources for implementation as a result of the 1988-89 workshops. The 64 programs serve the handicapped, at-risk youth and hard-to-serve adults. Program descriptions include information on contact persons, program goals, target populations, planned activities, and resources. (CML)
