Fadale, LaVerna M.; Zhao, Peisheng
As required by the Carl D. Perkins Vocational and Applied Technology Education Act of 1990 (VATEA), a project was undertaken to develop an accountability system for New York State equity programs funded under sections 221 and 222 of the VATEA. This document profiles the resulting accountability system and serves as a guide for program staff implementing the system at secondary and postsecondary institutions. The report is divided into five sections, the first of which presents an overview of the program and provides sections 221 and 222 of the VATEA. Section 2 features a general description of the equity accountability system (EAS), indicating that expected outcomes are divided into three general categories: (1) institutional-related outcomes, including equal access and equitable education, ongoing collaborative efforts, increased persistence and completion in programs, and increased placement; (2) program- or client-related outcomes, including improvement of personal/coping skills, academic skills, availability of support services, and acquisition of marketable skills/competencies; and (3) specialized services, events, and short-term activities providing access to a variety of single contact services. Section 3 features the forms and materials used in the EAS, including the interim report form, instructions for completing the EAS final report form, and a completed sample final report form. Section 4 features samples of forms and materials regarding demographic information, activity/event registration and records, a log of services provided, and participant feedback and tracking. Finally, section 5 provides user manuals for client- and program-based computer databases and a selected list of resources. (MAB)
