Idaho Division of Vocational Education Annual Report, FY 1998.
Idaho State Div. of Vocational Education, Boise.
This annual report highlights the activities of Idaho's Division of Vocational Education in fiscal year 1998. The mission of vocational and applied technology education is to provide Idaho's youth and adults with the technical skills, knowledge, and attitudes necessary for successful performance in a globally competitive workplace. Idaho's vocational-technical education system consists of programs and services in secondary schools, the technical college system, and a system office, the Division of Vocational Education. These programs include: (1) agricultural science and technology; (2) business and office technology; (3) individualized occupational training; (4) trade and industry; and (5) farm business management. While over the years many of the general program areas have remained the same, specific program content has changed dramatically to keep pace with rapid technological advances in the work environment. One hundred and nine school districts have approved vocational-technical programs and 86.5% of high school students took at least one vocational class in 1998. In the same year, 2.3 percent of the total State General Fund was appropriated to the Division of Vocational Education for vocational-technical education. The State General Fund and federal resources were the two primary funding sources for Vocational-Technical Education. (JA)
