The Role of Postsecondary Institutions in School-to-Work. Resource Bulletin.
National School-to-Work Opportunities Office, Washington, DC.
This bulletin begins with a discussion of the role of postsecondary institutions in school-to-work. The following section presents strategies to engage postsecondary institutions in school-to-work: articulation agreements, developing partnerships and systems, coordinated learning, multiple admissions standards, assessment and follow-up, and professional development. The bulletin then presents effective practices that focus on two examples of innovative partnerships between secondary and postsecondary institutions that use articulation agreements, innovative admission standards, joint evaluation and assessment efforts, joint development of curricula, and other mechanisms to weave together a smooth school-to-work system: the University of Wisconsin System and the Greater Louisville Youth School-to-Work Initiative. Contacts and addresses for these programs are provided. The bulletin then lists 14 organizations that can provide further information on the topic. Brief summaries describe the organizations' focus and activities. (YLB)
