This report evaluates the progress made in the implementing School-to-Work (STW) programs, which are designed to align the education system with the workplace by preparing students for college and employment opportunities. This evaluation surveyed local partnerships between schools and employers, case studies for states, surveyed 12th grade and college students, and analyzed the transcripts of students in the high school sample. Results revealed that some progress has been made on the School to Work Opportunities Act agenda, broad career development is being predominately emphasized, and STW is engaging a range of students who find the STW activities helpful for determining their career objectives.
