School-to-Work for Lancaster County Adults. Final Report. Program Year 1997-98.
Tyson, Diane F.
This document contains materials about and from the School-to-Work for Lancaster County Adults program. This program was a special demonstration project designed to develop a school-to-work (STW) model for adult learners. In an alternative high school setting, the program combined academic instruction, career exploration and planning, and employment skill development through a mix of work-based and service learning. The final project report details how 18 of the 24 students enrolled in the high school-level STW program, which was altered to "front load" the STW and service learning experiences included in the program and which featured an open-entry/open-exit design based on self-paced, competency-based learning. Appendixes constituting approximately 90% of the document contain the following: follow-up survey for noncompleters; STW self-paced materials (progress form, learning activities, student handouts, and core skills list for lessons on communication skills, personal appearance and presentation, human relations skills, code of conduct at work, time management and organizational skills, safety, general computer and equipment skills, and career exploration and awareness); service learning group workshop materials; service learning service site materials; and materials from a career development conference presentation, "School-to-Work Strategies for the Adult Learner" (Diane Tyson, Rhonda Rumbaugh).
