Biennial Carl D. Perkins/Job Training Partnership Act Evaluation Report. July 01, 1992-June 30, 1994.
Idaho State Council on Vocational Education, Boise.
An evaluation was made of programs conducted under the Carl D. Perkins Vocational and Applied Technology Act and the Job Training Partnership Act (JTPA) in Idaho during fiscal years 1993 and 1994. Data gained from the administering agencies and providers by way of reports, interviews, group conferences, and records were used as evidence of the adequacy and effectiveness of these acts in achieving their purposes. The evaluation determined the following: number and type of students or clients served; quantitative measurements of program operation; organizational structures and procedures designed to fulfill program goals; and statements about program operation expressed by providers of services, students and clients, persons in the community, and administering agencies. Some of the conclusions drawn from evaluation of the implementation of the Perkins Act included the following: participation of secondary schools and technical colleges was widespread; the tech prep initiative made positive contributions to the vocational community; service to special populations produced positive outcomes; and, although the implementation of the act was generally positive, it was not accepted by some in the vocational community. Some of the conclusions drawn from the evaluation of the implementation of the JTPA were as follows: vocational-technical education and JTPA programs have made attempts to coordinate their efforts, especially in planning, and JTPA and technical college cooperation has been very successful. Recommendations were made for improvement in the programs supported by both acts. (KC)
