The report describes the development and effectiveness of a program designed to help handicapped students fomerly served within New York state operated or supported school settings make the transition into public (local) high schools. Teacher-trainers provided services through two program components: career-related program support, which emphasized career-related knowledge, skills, and vocational attitudes or behavior of students who regularly attend classes; and attendance improvement, which focused on students with histories of excessive absences. While the career-related knowledge and skills and the vocational attitude objectives were both met, the attendance improvement objective was not. Staff were generally positive about the program although they believed that notification of student eligibility and the amount of time spent trying to retrieve students with long term absences were major obstacles.
