South Carolina's Occupational Education delivery system made progress in achieving the 3-year goals contained in the Two-Year State Plan for Vocational-Technical Education, FY 1995-96, especially through its continued implementation of tech prep. Workshops provided technical assistance related to standards and measures. The system consisted of 242 secondary schools, 49 vocational centers, and 16 technical colleges. Over 2,000 individuals participated in the 31 single parents/displaced homemakers/single pregnant women programs in operation. Two major areas addressed with funds under the sex equity program were the special needs of young women aged 14-25 and elimination of sex bias and sex role stereotyping in occupational education programs. The entire student body at the Department of Juvenile Justice was served, and 2,843 inmates from adult correctional institutions were enrolled in occupational education courses. Results from monitoring visits revealed that districts were providing equal access to programs for students with disabilities. In many districts, disadvantaged students were the majority. Sixteen joint occupational education projects between local education agencies and community-based organizations were funded and operated. Enrollment in tech prep continued to grow, as statewide implementation of tech prep remained a major thrust. (Appendixes include enrollment and placement data, linkages to Goals 2000, summary of compliance status, and descriptions of exemplary programs.) (YLB)
