Texas Education Agency, Austin.
This guide is designed to assist adult education cooperatives in implementing educational services for recipients of Aid to Families with Dependent Children participating in the Job Opportunities and Basic Skills (JOBS) program. It addresses the educational services to be provided by the cooperatives per the interagency cooperation contract entered into by the Texas Department of Human Services and Texas Education Agency. The guide amplifies the responsibilities of the adult education cooperative system in the delivery of educational services to JOBS participants. Recommendations are made for implementing the educational programs in a successful and cost-effective manner. These areas are covered: the referral process, academic assessment, instructional delivery, educational activities, ancillary services, attendance verification, and location and coordination. The fiscal policies governing program administration are then clarified. Funding restrictions, quarterly and final reimbursements, and program accountability are discussed. Appendixes include a JOBS education service provider referral form and JOBS weekly attendance verification form. (YLB)
