The purpose of this study was to collect, describe, and interpret source materials pertaining to the history of the three area vocational centers and the three area vocational schools in Utah. The historical method of research was used, and the collection of data was from personal interviews, research of records, and publications of the six vocational institutions, the Utah State Board of Education, and the local school districts.

The three area centers and the three area schools began as an outgrowth of the 1963 Vocational Education Act and the 1968 Vocational Amendments. These vocational institutions were established to meet the needs of local students and to meet the economical needs of the local school districts. Today, the three area centers and the three area schools are providing much needed services to the State of Utah.
