The report presents evaluation findings for California's Project Workability, designed to enable handicapped high schoolers to become more employable. The report focuses on the coordination among the three agencies involved in the project: the State Department of Education, the Department of Rehabilitation, and the Employment Development Department. Interviews with agency officials, site visits, and review of agency evaluations of the project revealed that the project has improved the coordination of services for and the employability of handicapped students, coordination efforts have improved services to handicapped students, and the project has made handicapped students more employable. Further, attitudes of students and students' parents, teachers, and employers about the employability of handicapped students were improved. (CL)
