School-to-Careers: Report on the Year 4 Evaluation of Nevada's STC Implementation System.
Loesch-Griffin, Deborah; Rye, Alyssa
This report is a summary of the evaluation of the Nevada School-to-Careers (STC) Year 4 (1999-2000) implementation and the extent to which implementation supported eight messages STC is intended to send. Results from three surveys are included: Quantitative Benchmark Survey, School Implementation Profile, and Student Exit Survey. All regional partnerships--Washoe, Western, Northeastern, and Southern--were studied. Both qualitative and quantitative data provide evidence to support all eight messages: (1) students are motivated to learn and reach for higher standards because they see the relevance of their studies; (2) career pathways provide all students with a focus for achieving their career and academic goals; (3) employer involvement in education leads to powerful and relevant learning experiences for all students; (4) community members who work together deliver relevant learning experiences for all students; (5) involved parents help all students reach their full potential; (6) educators understand economic and community needs and demonstrate competencies required by licensure to integrate real life applications into classes; (7) student learning experiences in the community lead to academic and career success; and (8) the STC system in Nevada impacts dropout rates. (Eighteen graphs and three charts are included. Appendixes include Nevada STC evaluation and communication statewide messages; recommended changes to benchmarks for evaluating STC implementation system; evaluation objectives and methodologies; and quantitative benchmark survey and school implementation profile.)
