Guam Community Coll., Agana. Office of the State Agency for Vocational and Adult Education.
To remain current and provide support for vocational programs, Guam's State Director of Vocational and Adult Education worked closely with mainland agencies and organizations in 1991-92. A committee of practitioners developed a statewide system of core performance measures and standards. Leadership training kept program administrators up-to-date. Special training requested by government agencies and private enterprises was conducted at the worksite. Seventeen craft committees were active. Transportation was provided to vocational high school students who needed access to special facilities, equipment, and instructors. Career guidance and counseling activities included computerized career information, evaluation of incarcerated adults, development of a wellness training program, and a career resource center. Vocational programs provided for academic integration with strong emphasis on basic communications and for academic assistance. Tourism and marketing were the most popular secondary programs. Special postsecondary activities focused on construction and tourism, the major economic forces on Guam. On- and off-island professional development activities were available. Special programs were provided for handicapped individuals, persons with limited English proficiency, incarcerated adults, single parents, and displaced homemakers. (Appendixes include 1992 enrollment table, System of Performance Measures and Standards, program agreement and closeout report for an academic learning laboratory, and financial reports.) (YLB)
