Gathering Momentum! Transition from School to Work. Featuring Profiles of 23 Ohio Programs.
This report examines the provisions of the School-to-Work Opportunities Act and describes the steps that have been taken thus far to establish an Ohio system. It discusses the general features that must be included in Ohio's school-to-work system and the strategies around which Ohio's school-to-work plans are being structured. Recommendations are made regarding curriculum and instruction, teachers, students/parents, employers, schools, support, and miscellaneous items. The main focus of the report is a series of profiles of new and existing programs that fall under the school-to-work umbrella. These profiles are presented as models that other school districts, agencies, and employer groups interested in taking the school-to-work approach to high school reform may wish to adopt or adapt. This section begins with the profiles of 11 school-to-work demonstration programs being supported by the State of Ohio through the Ohio Department of Education and the Department of Development. Information regarding the primary contact people for each program is also provided. These profiles are followed by descriptions of the following: existing school-to-work transition opportunities for regular in-school students, regular cooperative education programs, Job Training Partnership Act-eligible in-school youth, and regular and disadvantaged adults. Information regarding the primary contact people for each program is included. Contains 25 references. (YLB)
