Maine State Council on Vocational Education, Hallowell.
This report presents the results of a federally mandated biennial evaluation of the effectiveness of the coordination between vocational education and the Job Training Partnership Act (JTPA) in achieving the purposes of the Carl D. Perkins Vocational and Applied Technology Education Act and JTPA. An overview describes the Maine vocational system, which includes 26 vocational centers and regions at the secondary level and 6 technical colleges at the postsecondary level and the 3 JTPA service delivery areas. Recommendations are made in four areas: (1) programs assisted under the Perkins Act in the areas of education, special populations, private sector involvement, tech prep, and corrections; (2) programs assisted under JTPA; (3) coordination; and (4) changes in Perkins funding. Distribution of Perkins funds is illustrated in charts and a diagram. Descriptions are provided of 17 projects representing 6 types of programs--coordination, equity, integration, partnerships, total quality management, and other. The name, address, and telephone number of a contact are provided for each program. Appendixes include diagrams illustrating student enrollments, results of an employer needs survey, and 16 references. (YLB)
