This document reports activities and findings of a study concerning the California State Job Training Coordinating Council's implementation of the Job Training Partnership Act (JTPA). The study had the following objectives: (1) analyze the structure, role, and administrative policies of the council; (2) determine the effects and benefits of council policies on private sector involvement in JTPA, on local Private Industry Councils, on Service Delivery Areas (SDAs), on other employment and training programs, on economic development, and on overall program performance; (3) assess the organizational and functional interrelationships of the different players in JTPA and related programs; (4) determine how the JTPA impact varies from that of earlier employment and training programs; (5) define specific effects on, or needs of, the private sector as related to JTPA implementation; (6) develop strategic and tactical recommendations for improving council performance and effectiveness; and (7) analyze the implications of demographic trends in California on council policy and strategy. The document introduces the study, reviews the literature, describes state and local programs, summarizes a private sector survey, explains trends in California's JTPA program, provides an overview of demographic and economic changes predicted for California in the year 2000, reports a survey of Job Training Coordinating Councils in other states, and reports the study's findings and recommendations. The document also includes a 44-item bibliography, a glossary, and two appendices. The appendices report relationships of performance measures and SDA characteristics and the summary results of an employer survey. (CML)
