The purpose of this study is to present a comprehensive picture of the basic idea behind area vocational technical schools operating under the Vocational Education Act of 1963. The study covers the first two years of the school. Data is limited in the area of enrollment. Since the school has just completed its second year, many changes will occur before the school is completely established. Information for the study was obtained through interviews and research into the files of Southwest Kansas Area Vocational - Technical School. The interviews were conducted with three administrators and were informal in nature. Through these interviews a knowledge of the area vocational-technical school, practical nurse program, and cosmetology program was secured. The information taken from the files included correspondence, publications from the school, and statistical information. Much of the correspondence was in letter form between the State Vocational Education Office and Southwest Kansas Area Vocational Technical School concerning establishment of the school. Publications were news releases, pamphlets, and brochures. The statistical information was figures from previous enrollments, budgets, and re-allotments. It is hoped that the information contained in this thesis might be helpful in the establishment of new vocational technical schools. This thesis presents a comprehensive picture of the federal law, budgets, administration, curriculum, and enrollment information of the Southwest Kansas Area Vocational-Technical School.
