These four issues of "Aligning," a newsletter-like publication of the Colorado School-to-Career Partnership and Partnerships for Educating Colorado Students, provide information about various facets of the school-to-work program in the state. One of the four-page issues highlights the connection between the work of the Colorado Education Goals Panel and the School-to-Career Partnership to revitalize and renew Colorado's education system, and provides tips for parents and families, students, businesses and employers, and educators to get involved in the Partnership. Another issue focuses on the arts and the benefits of using arts exposure and education to develop workplace competencies. Listings of Colorado arts resources, 301 possible careers in the arts, and school-to-career arts projects are included. A third issue explores the link between service learning and school-to-career, including the benefits of connecting the two educational strategies and suggested methods of incorporating school-to-career and service learning in various courses. The fourth issue links school-to-career and vocational rehabilitation, showing how this alliance can improve post-school employment outcomes for students with disabilities. All four issues provide lists of contacts for further information. (KC)
