Governance and Funding of Montana's Vo-Tech Centers: Options for Change. A Report to the 50th Legislature. Joint Interim Subcommittee on Vo-Techs/Job Training.
Montana Legislative Council, Helena.
A Montana legislative committee surveyed the vocational education system in the state in order to draw up resolutions for legislation changing some of the administration and funding of the postsecondary part of the vocational system. This report presents an overview of the vocational education system, including the following: (1) a review of legislative involvement in vocational-technical governance and funding; (2) powers and duties of governance components and other agencies; (3) financial status of the vocational-technical system; (4) programs and services at the vocational-technical centers; (5) vocational-technical student profiles; and (6) the role and scope of vocational-technical education in Montana's education system. Based on this overview, recommendations were made that the state legislature enact laws to continue and intensify general support for postsecondary vocational-technical education in Montana and transfer the governance of the five vocational-technical centers from the Office of Public Instruction to the Board of Regents of Higher Education.
