Abstract :
  The paper is the second in a series of six descriptive analyses. Its focus is the 238 students/clients who participated in the Competency-Based High School Diploma (CBHSD) program for CETA clients at six sites in Texas: Abilene, Austin, Brownsville, El Paso, Houston, and Temple. The following topics are covered: the population served, enrollment procedures, counseling, instruction, work and/or skill training, and problems. The first section covers the ethnic composition, age, education level and the expectations and goals of candidates. The intake and referral functions carried out by CETA personnel during the enrollment process, and counseling functions of both CETA and APL staff during the project are discussed. Academic coursework in the five knowledge areas is detailed, along with work and/or skill training. Finally, the problems section discusses various issues related to effectively coordinating activities of CETA and CBHSD personnel, operating the APL curriculum and CBHSD process, and serving student/client interests.
