Transition: Student to Work. Models for Effective Transition Planning.
Krieg, Fred Jay; And Others
There are great parallels between the School-to-Work Opportunities Act and the legislation which produced transition services for individuals with disabilities. The rationale is clearly the same: a real recognition and concern exists about the difficult transition that faces all high school graduates as they prepare to live on their own, assume new roles in the adult community, and enter the world of work. This project was implemented to develop a training package for transition services to assist transition teams in Middle Schools and High Schools. It provides extensive information about the School-to-Work Opportunities Act and its mandates for transition services. The legislation, intended primarily to help the 75 percent of American youth who will not pursue a traditional four-year college degree, is designed to assist these young people by formulating a universal, high-quality, school-to-work transition system that enables youth in the United States to identify and navigate paths to productive and progressively more rewarding roles in the workplace. Chapters include: "School to Work"; "Definition and Legislation"; "The Transition Process"; "The Transition Profile"; and "Theory into Practice." Extensive appendixes, which account for approximately one-half of the publication, include inventories, surveys, the transition profiles, forms, and case studies developed for this project. Contains a 44-item bibliography. (JBJ)
