This resource directory, which is designed to assist educators across Ohio who are involved in developing and implementing school-to-work systems, describes a number of promising school-to-work practices and partnerships that embrace and represent elements of Ohio's vision of a school-to-work system.

The remainder of the directory consists of descriptions of promising practices and partnerships related to the following: local partnerships; school-based learning; career development; work-based learning; mentoring; internship; apprenticeship; connecting activities; skill standards, credentialing, and passports; and school-to-work systems. Each description contains some or all of the following: program name; purpose of the practice/partnership; major activities; outcomes; and contact person. Appended are the following: table outlining 13 strategies for stimulating/supporting local school-to-work opportunity systems; guidelines for developing a resource base; information about the National School-to-Work Learning and Information Center; and school-to-work template.
