Proposed Performance Standards for Comprehensive Support Services and Vocational Equity Grants.
Lewis, Morgan V.
Activities to develop proposed performance standards and measures for programs receiving funds authorized by the Carl D. Perkins Vocational and Applied Technology Education Act are described in this report. Two sections of the act are considered: Section 221 authorizes programs for single parents, displaced homemakers, and single pregnant women; and Section 222 authorizes sex equity programs. In Ohio, funds for these programs are disbursed under Comprehensive Support Services (CSS) or Vocational Equity Grants. The final draft of the CSS/Equity Standards for the CSS Grant is provided for the following groups: adult students, secondary students, ONOW (Orientation to Nontraditional Occupations for Women) participants, displaced homemakers and GOALS (Graduation, Occupation, and Living Skills) participants, NETWork (Nontraditional Education for Teens/Work) participants, and participants in VBO (Ventures in Business Ownership). An appendix documents the activities that produced the standards. It contains the original equity standards draft; the agenda for the Committee to Review Draft Performance Standards for Programs Receiving Funds from Sex Equity, Single Parents, Displaced Homemaker, and Single Pregnant Women Grants; a list of practitioners on the review panel; draft versions of the CSS/Equity Standards and CSS/Equity Performance Standards; a summary of comments on the draft; conference call memorandum; and a list of the proposed performance standards for VBO.
