Revising Department of Public Instruction Practices Regarding the Carl Perkins Vocational Education Act. A Workshop Report with Recommendations for Improvement. Bulletin No. 95168.
Wisconsin State Dept. of Public Instruction, Madison.
This report describes the process, participants, and recommendations for change evolving from a workshop centered on a review of Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction (DPI) practices relating to the federal Carl Perkins Act. A workshop summary discusses the background, process, and outcomes of the workshop. Highlights are provided from the three groups that deliberated on three broad topical areas: application guidelines, related issues, and the Vocational Education Enrollment Reporting System (VEERS). Other contents include the workshop invitation, workshop agenda and participant list, and breakout team directions, topical issues, and roster. Lists of suggestions for breakout team recommendations follow. The recommendations for the applications guidelines identify 30 specific suggestions for potential changes to the guidelines themselves as well as identification of various issues related to them (e.g., putting the application information on Wisenet, etc.). The related issues recommendations focus on these three issues: Local Vocational Education Coordinators requirement, consortium fiscal practices, and DPI consultant role. The VEERS recommendations relate to four major areas: clarification of definitions, descriptions, and ideas; technical assistance needs; communication between DPI, fiscal agents, and local education authorities; and multiple requests for related data. The report concludes with the workshop evaluation form and summary of evaluation form comments. (YLB)
