Presentation to Administrators. School to Work: Raising Standards in New York State.
Hudson River Center for Program Development, Glenmont, NY.
This document contains materials for use in conducting a 1-hour presentation for administrators of school-to-work (STW) programs in New York State in order to elicit their support for the state's STW initiative and encourage them to share information about the initiative with others in their communities. The document begins with nine tips for delivering the presentation. Provided next is a suggested script for presenters that addresses the following topics: (1) the history and objectives of STW; (2) key principles of STW; (3) ways STW benefits administrators (provides better results for students; helps students validate career choices; enables students to meet New York State learning standards and improve their performance on state tests; motivates students; improves career opportunities; maintains better relationships between students and adults in schools and in the community; garners board support for education by involving the community in schools); (4) common myths regarding STW and the facts dispelling them; and (5) the administrator's role in STW (provide visionary leadership; demonstrate commitment to and belief in STW; show how STW incorporates other educational reforms; identify existing resources that further STW initiatives). Eight transparency masters, 8 handouts (including a 12-item bibliography of STW resources), and a sample evaluation form are also provided. (MN)
