Kansas Vocational Education Performance Report for Fiscal Year 1993. Carl D. Perkins Vocational and Applied Technology Education Act Amendments of 1990.
Kansas State Board of Education, Topeka.
The Kansas State Board of Education awarded $10.25 million to local education agencies through the Carl D. Perkins Vocational and Applied Technology Education Act of 1990. A work group developed the System of Measures and Standards of Performance (SMSP). Programs for single parents, displaced homemakers, and single pregnant women were funded to provide education/training, employment readiness, and job placement. Seven gender equity facilitator projects and 17 projects to provide young women access to training and support services for technical and nontraditional occupations were funded. Funding provided programs for criminal offenders in corrections institutions and special populations students. To promote state leadership and professional development, funds for curriculum development, inservice training, and vocational student organizations were awarded. Community-based organizations provided transitional programs, outreach programs, and other services for economically and educationally disadvantaged youth. Consumer and homemaking funds were awarded in four categories: food science, pregnant and/or parenting teens, balancing work and family, and statewide leadership. Funding was awarded for integration of applied academics into vocational education and career guidance and counseling and to consortia for development of tech prep programs. (Appendixes include the SMSP, descriptions of exemplary programs, and strategic directions for Kansas Education.) (YLB)
