Building Inclusive School-to-Work Systems. State Profiles: Colorado, Maryland, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Oregon, Rhode Island, Vermont.
Chadsey, Janis; Leach, Lynda; Shelden, Debra
This report contains profiles of eight states (Colorado, Maryland, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Oregon, Rhode Island, Vermont) that describe the states' efforts to include youth with disabilities in School-to-Work efforts. Data were gathered on each of the states through written records of state resources and grants, web site information, information from a National Transition Alliance (NTA) technical assistance provider who worked with the states, notes from an NTA workshop that featured School-to-Work presentations from seven of the eight states, and telephone interviews with at least two state-level personnel and at least one local provider. The information was developed into state profiles that provide an overview of the following for each of the states: (1) legislation, policy, regulation; (2) leadership and partnership; (3) resources and programs; (4) activities from local partnerships; (5) successes and challenges; and (6) sustainability issues.
