This annual performance report describes accomplishments achieved in Colorado through funding from the Carl D. Perkins Vocational Education Act. Four sections focus on four categories of initiatives. Section I addresses enhancement of services to students through the basic state grant under Title II, Part A. Vocational education opportunities are described for these categories: handicapped, disadvantaged, limited English proficient, adults in need of training and retraining, single parents and displaced homemakers, teen parents, sex equity, and criminal offenders in correctional institutions. Section II focuses on vocational education program improvement, innovation, and expansion through Title II, Part B. These program areas are addressed: career counseling, placement, and guidance; curriculum development; curriculum assistance; equipment; and exemplary programs in 13 areas. Section III describes community-based organizations assisted under provisions of Title III, Part A. Section IV describes improvement and expansion of consumer and homemaking programs under provisions of Title III, Part B. Within each section, the program profile may contain some or all of these components: state plan/objective, program area/project title, focus of program area, significant achievements, and impact. An appendix amounting to over one-half of the report provides examples of initiatives under the specified categories and, in some cases, success stories illustrating student outcomes. (YLB)
