Vandegrift, Judith A.; Larson, Elizabeth Hunt
This document profiles the following 13 regional partnerships that together constitute Arizona's school-to-work (STW) system: Cochise STW Partnership; Coconino County STW Partnership; Eastern Arizona STW Partnership; East Valley STW Initiative; Mohave Workforce Development Partnership; Northeast Valley School to Work Consortium; Northland School to Work Opportunities System; Phoenix STW Initiative; Pima and Santa Cruz Counties STW Partnership; Pinal County STW Partnership; Western Maricopa Consortium; Yavapai County STW Partnership; and Yuma/LaPaz STW Partnership. The introduction explains how, in January 1996, Arizona embarked on implementation of its state STW system by awarding roughly $2.4 million to 13 partnerships consisting of business groups, educators, community organizations, and parents so that the partnerships could develop and manage a range of school-based, work-based, and connecting activities. The remainder of the document consists of the profiles, which each contain some or all of the following: fiscal 1995-1996 and 1996-1997 budgets; school profile; total student enrollment for the partnership; progress made toward meeting the six state-specified partnership goals (system governance and partnership development; program coordination and integration; technical assistance; community involvement; public awareness; system evaluation); discussion of partnership assets and challenges; and summary and suggestions. Twenty-seven tables/figures are included. Appended are excerpts from the national instrument "Progress Measures." (MN)
