Wisconsin Secondary Vocational Education Annual Performance Report 1994.
Wisconsin State Dept. of Public Instruction, Madison.
In 1994, the Department of Public Instruction/Bureau for Vocational Education (DPI/BVE) proposed performance standards and measures that dovetailed into the existing secondary vocational data system. Tech prep and youth apprenticeship options were provided to all people and groups. Services provided to single parents, displaced homemakers, and single pregnant women were in most demand by category. Teen single parent projects funded in fiscal year 1994 included the following: half-credit vocational courses, "Teen Pregnancy Prevention" road shows, preemployment training leading to supervised on-the-job training at a community-based training site, nontraditional career experiences, career planning curriculum, and coordination of service with the regular school program. Wisconsin's secondary equity efforts were concentrated in these areas: regional staff development/technical assistance, statewide equity leadership, and demonstration/development/research projects promoting nontraditional career options. Academic remediation and expanded remedial vocational instruction were provided in youth correctional institutions. Other accomplishments included services provided to special populations, state leadership and professional development, the community/vocational education program, and consumer and homemaking education in depressed areas of the state. Tech prep continued to be led by a grassroots organization called the Tech Prep Leadership Group. (Appendixes include descriptions of exemplary activities and a table of Tech Prep Performance Measures.) (YLB)
