Full report in PDF format

  • The program indicates it has exceeded its statutory outcome goals for graduation, employment, and earnings.  However, program staff do not calculate employment rates and earnings consistent with statutory goals.
  • Operating currently in 34 schools, the program will need to substantially expand its operations over the next year to meet its upcoming goal of operating in 300 schools in the 2001-02 school year.
  • The program needs to improve the performance and training of its job specialists who are not performing all of the required tasks to promote and market the program to local businesses.
  • The program’s board of directors should become more active in guiding the program, but it has waited for the new Commissioner of Education to take office before moving forward on several initiatives.
