Learning To Make Dutchess County Work. 1992 Annual Placement Report.
Heenan, Edward W.
A study examined the current employment status of persons who graduated from the Dutchess County (New York) Board of Cooperative Educational Services (BOCES) Technical Center in June 1992. Data were obtained from a follow-up survey mailed to program graduates in October 1992. Of the 456 individuals who graduated in 1992, 207 were still available for employment. Of the 195 (94.2%) graduates who were employed, 141 (72.3%) had been placed in jobs in their area of training. Of the 64 graduates enrolled in colleges and technical schools, 42 were in a major related to their previous technical center program. Eleven graduates were in the military. Of the 174 graduates not in the labor force, 6 were not working for medical reasons, 9 had moved from the area, 10 were not interested in employment, and 149 had returned to high school to complete graduation requirements. (This report includes extensive information about the services available from the technical center's placement office, breakdowns of graduates' employment/educational patterns by vocational-technical program, and lists of firms/educational institutions at which the graduates are now located. Appended are the graduate follow-up questionnaire and related survey correspondence.) (MN)
