Ohio State Council on Vocational Education, Westerville.
The Ohio Council on Vocational Education consists of 13 members: 7 from private business, industry, agriculture, labor, and the State Job Training Partnership Act administration, and 6 from secondary and postsecondary education. The council advises the governor, the State Board of Education, and the private sector on developing state plans, establishing program evaluation criteria, reaching special populations, involving business and labor in vocational education, coordinating secondary and postsecondary programs, and establishing technical committees. During the 1990-91 fiscal year, the council undertook the following activities: held five conferences throughout the state, observed and evaluated three secondary and two postsecondary institutions, reviewed two two-year college programs, recognized outstanding vocational-technical program alumni, and held a public meeting. Members and staff participated in 30 inservice training sessions. The council worked on development of the state plan for vocational education as required by the Perkins Act, established many business-education committees, conducted reviews of one-fifth of Ohio's vocational programs, and made five recommendations to the State Board of Education. (This document contains the following: 1991 recommendations and their disposition; statistical data, graphs, and charts showing employment rates of vocational completers, vocational enrollment, and vocational education for special needs populations and for adults; and statistics on postsecondary technical education, budgets, and use of resources.)
