State Plan: Vocational Education for Youth in Juvenile Justice Commitment Facilities.
Florida State Dept. of Education, Tallahassee.; Florida State Dept. of Juvenile Justice, Tallahassee.
In 2000, a multi-agency plan was developed for the vocational education of youth in juvenile commitment facilities. Part 1 of the plan describes the Plan Narrative, which provides contextual information and describes events leading up to the development of the plan, the rationale for creating the plan, and the characteristics of vocational education programs needed in juvenile commitment facilities. The plan narrative addresses topics such as a model continuum for the range of services from enter to post-release, issues to consider in placing youth, vocational offerings, and strategies for engaging business in vocational programming. Part 2 is the implementation schedule and includes the responsibilities of the lead agencies. The tasks are presented in priority order beginning with a focus on staff development and the creation of model program sites. Ten appendixes list extensive additional information such as recommendations, curriculum, sites for resource materials, information on commitment facilities, and types of assessment instruments.
