Vocational Education. Comprehensive Annual Performance Report, FY95.
Ohio State Dept. of Education, Columbus. Div. of Vocational and Adult Education.
This document is a comprehensive report of Ohio activities related to the expenditures of federal funds under the Carl D. Perkins Vocational and Applied Technology Education Act of 1990 during the period July 1, 1994 through June 30, 1995. The report contains three sections, each formatted to meet different accountability standards. Section 1 fulfills the statutory requirements of 34 CFR 80.40 and follows the format outlined by the Office of Management and Budget. Areas examined include the following: performance standards and core measures; vocational education linkages to other national and state efforts; secondary, postsecondary, and adult vocational programs, services, and activities; single parents, displaced homemakers, and single pregnant women; sex equity programs; criminal offenders; special populations; state leadership and professional development; community-based organizations; family and consumer sciences education; tech prep; integrating applied academics into vocational education; and career guidance and counseling). Section 2 is an accountability report of the major goals identified in the State Plan for the Administration of Vocational Education in Ohio. It includes the following: a mission statement for vocational and adult education in Ohio; state board strategic objectives; 1995 status of 1994 vocational completers; and the state plan objective progress report. Section 3 is a summary report of the statewide system for the evaluation of 20 percent of the eligible recipients assisted within the state during each fiscal year. This section describes the findings of the fourth year of the Measuring and Planning Progress system. Some of the findings of the report are as follows: (1) except for the adult education enrollment objectives and secondary disadvantaged enrollment objectives, the state plan objectives were on target and effective; (2) the adult education enrollments were severely affected by the loss of federal and state funds to operate programs; and (3) the decline in the number of secondary disadvantaged students in vocational education programs is probably due to a major change in the methods used to identify disadvantaged students, not the result of a decline in the actual number of disadvantaged students served. The report includes 15 tables and 25 figures. Appendixes include information on enrollments of adults, associate degree programs, secondary enrollments, and secondary job training programs. (KC)
