This technical assistance paper is designed to provide local adult vocational education administrators and teachers in Florida with information to implement the Vocational Preparatory Instruction (VPI) programs more effectively and in compliance with the VPI curriculum frameworks.

State-required frameworks are designed to provide consistency, programmatic quality, and integrity. The paper addresses the following areas: (1) purpose and terminology; (2) course matrix, including literacy completion points; (3) student eligibility and assessment; and (4) instructional methods. Two appendices that provide acronyms and a list of adult education courses meeting subject-area graduation requirements are included, as are directory of technical assistance directors and consultants organized in five regions of the state, and a state-level staff directory.
