State of Wisconsin VTAE Operational Planning Data. Fourth and Final Year of Study.
Redovich, Dennis W.
Tables, graphs, and charts are provided in this report on trends in operational planning data in the Wisconsin Vocational, Technical and Adult Education (VTAE) system for the period from 1979-80 to 1988-89. Four operational data sets are analyzed: full-time equivalent (FTE) and headcount enrollments and cost per FTE; VTAE graduates; operational faculty and staff compensation; and district finances. Data are presented for the state as a whole and for each district. In addition, data are provided on new programs, school personnel and salaries, revenue sources, and tuition and fees. Highlighted findings include the following: (1) state VTAE FTE enrollment peaked in 1982-83 at 64,303, followed by declines ranging from 1% to 6.5% in most subsequent years, but an increase of 2.2% in 1988-89; (2) overall, only about 21% of program enrollments were full-time students; (3) 14 of 16 districts had a majority of female enrollments; (4) associate degree graduates represented an increasing proportion of the system's total number of graduates, growing from 38.8% in 1975-76 to 51.1% in 1988-89; and (5) the 113 new degree programs that were introduced between 1980 and 1989 produced 963 graduates in 1988-89. A final section lists several common, but mistaken beliefs about labor market projections, high technology occupations, enrollment management, and fiscal planning and management. (JMC)
