High School and Community College Planning: Feasibility Study. Annual Report: 1 July 1987-30 June 1988.
Hedlund, Daniel
The feasibility of combining the resources of the school districts of Ottumwa, Iowa, and neighboring areas with Indian Hills Community College into a comprehensive program for Ottumwa high school students at a regional site was investigated. An articulated vocational program, beginning at the junior high level, would extend through high school, Indian Hills Community College, and perhaps to a baccalaureate degree in technologies. Competency-based curricula were seen to be offered throughout grades 10-14. Technical training and placement would occur through the college. Six assumptions were made by participants: a comprehensive high school is a desired delivery model; a cluster approach to vocational education is desired; high school level vocational education will not be exclusively job specific; the project assists high schools in meeting the requirements of 10 units in 4 out of 5 eligible clusters; parents and students will be involved; and definition will be added to the role of vocational education at both the high school and area school level. (Seven appendices are included: project budget; project staff; participating school districts and administrators; faculty response to Ohio State trip; third-party evaluations; "cooperation is the key"; and news clippings.)
