Vocational Adjustment Coordinators (VAC's) are counselors employed in a cooperative program between the Minneapolis Public Schools and the State Division of Vocational Rehabilitation. The program provides rehabilitation services to physically, mentally, emotionally, and behaviorally handicapped students. This study was conducted to obtain opinions about and recommendations for the VAC program from school personnel who had used these services. Questionnaires were distributed by guidance department chairmen in secondary schools. The return rate was 92%, but a number of respondents had never made referrals. These responses were analyzed separately. Of the users, 97% had made referrals this year. Regular weekly visits by the VAC were the most usual method of contact, and most people found him easily accessible when needed. Only about 1/3 of the respondents thought all handicapped students who should be getting help were getting it. Students response was thought to be positive, and there was general agreement with the vocational plans worked out by the VAC. Feedback was a problem for some. It was recommended that better information about eligibility requirements be provided at both junior and senior high levels, that feedback be improved after a student's rehabilitation program has been implemented, that referral be simplified, that students and parents be better informed, and that instructions for screening be given to all school personnel.
