Missouri State Coordinating Board for Higher Education, Jefferson City.
This Plan for Postsecondary Vocational Technical Education is a work in progress to build a seamless technical education delivery system from secondary through postsecondary education to employment. The plan outlines mechanisms to heighten citizen awareness of the critical importance of technical human resources to the state's economy. Similarly outlined are strategies for strengthening the current delivery system for postsecondary vocational technical education by enhancing program quality, increasing collaboration, and strengthening the necessary infrastructure. Chapter 1, entitled "Strengthening the Delivery System for Postsecondary Vocational Education," discusses desirable characteristics of a statewide system for postsecondary vocational education, which is essentially a vision for the future, and identifies statewide needs for strengthening this delivery system. Chapter 2, entitled "State Plan for Postsecondary Vocational Technical Education," examines the role of the: Coordinating Board for Higher Education, State Board of Education, State-Level Technical Education Council, Regional-Level Technical Education Councils, the state's community colleges, the state's vocational technical schools, Linn State Technical College, the state's baccalaureate colleges and universities, and the state's private career schools. Chapter 3, entitled "Financing of the Plan for Postsecondary Vocational Technical Education and Implementation Timeline," reports on initial financing for this state plan and provides an implementation timeline.
