This report documents the work done in Fiscal Year 1998 by the Ohio Department of Education, Division of Vocational and Adult Education, to address two major priorities as authorized by the Carl D. Perkins Vocational and Applied Technology Education Act of 1990: (1) single parents, displaced homemakers, and single pregnant women; and (2) vocational students in nontraditional programs, specifically those programs that will result in economic self-sufficiency. The report provides a review of each program; a profile of the participants in each of the programs; statistical data about participants' economic and personal situations at intake; and the outcomes at the end of the fiscal year. The grants highlighted in the report are as follows: (1) grants for single parents, displaced homemakers, and single pregnant women (Comprehensive Support Services Grant; Displaced Homemaker Program; Graduation, Occupation, and Living Skills Program; and Ventures in Business Ownership Program); and (2) equity funded grants (Nontraditional Education for Teens Work Program; Orientation to Nontraditional Occupations for Women Program; and Promoting Access in Technical Education Grant). Program information is provided in more than 50 tables and graphs. (KC)
