Ensuring All Students Access to School-to-Work Opportunity Systems in the States. Fifth in a Series on School-to-Work Implementation.
Partee, Glenda
Using data from the Survey of State School-to-Work Opportunity Systems (1994), a study examined states' work in providing the necessary support to involve all students in school-to-work opportunity systems. The study focused on a time when the states were in the planning or very early implementation stages of school-to-work system development. Responses were received from 17 states detailing strategies targeting specific populations of youth, including the following: low-achieving students; students with disabilities; young women, including those interested in nontraditional employment areas; students from low-income families; students with limited English proficiency; students from rural communities with low population density; academically talented students; and school dropouts. The strategies tended to fall within one or more of the following categories: student supports (remediation, tutoring, counseling and career awareness, mentoring, special resource and materials development); restructured schools and new instructional methods (greater use of applied learning, integration of academic and occupational education, attention to student learning styles); expanded use of alternative learning opportunities; special work-based learning experiences designed to engage youth, and expansion and use of school-to-work models; technical assistance and staff inservice training; collaboration and partnership activities; comprehensive or multipronged strategies; and federal or state programs.
