VERS Handbook for Administrators on Career-Vocational Education Services for Disadvantaged Students and Students with Handicapping Conditions. Fourth Revision. Impact Programs.
Apolloni, Tony, Ed.
This handbook was produced by the California Vocational Education Resource System (VERS) to assist administrators in planning, implementing, and monitoring career-vocational education services for students with special needs (disabled, disadvantaged, or limited English proficient) in regular vocational education classrooms. The guide is organized in 17 modules covering the following: ideology; federal and state regulations; program planning; funding and fiscal management; personnel development; community relations; coordination with community support agencies; student identification; student assessment; development of Individualized Education Programs (IEPs); classroom/program placement; instructional accommodations; learning centers; job market analysis; job development; job placement; and follow-up services. Each module is prefaced by a "time-saver" cover page that briefly defines the vocational education topic or process covered in the module, lists the sections of the module, and suggests ways in which it might be used. Supplementary materials are appended to some modules. (KC)
