NET Gain No. 15:
School-to-Work Web Sites
(January 1998)

The September 1995 Installment of "NET Gain" featured several Web sites dealing with school-to-work. Since then the number of school-to-work sites has mushroomed, but some of the original sites have grown and continue to serve as useful sources of legislation updates, contacts and ideas. The following are among our favorite school-to-work sites.

National School-to-Work Learning and Information Center site is probably the most complete school-to-work site listed here. It includes an abundance of information about initiatives, resources, grants, technical assistance providers, research and events.

Florida School-to-Work Information Navigator Florida site includes a conference calendar, brochures in Spanish, exemplary program highlights, Web-based videos, and information about free satellite telecasts. The site also links to resources for grant and funding information, legislative updates and evaluation materials.

National Center for Research in Vocational Education site includes full texts of newsletters, monographs and other reports produced by NCRVE. It also includes skill standards links, a calendar of events and a listing of school-to-work technical assistance providers. The NCRVE school-to-work products mini-catalog is searchable at

Education Week Education Week newspaper has a good site that points to school-to-work articles from its archives. It also provides other print and Web resources on school-to-work.

New York State Department of Labor site focuses on youth careers and has information about choosing a career, acquiring needed skills, finding a job, and tools for educators. It also links to working papers and a career resource library. Nebraska, Texas, Vermont and California also have School-to-Work websites. Go to for links to these sites.

Vocational Education Resources website includes links to over 15 other sites related specifically to school-to- work and tech prep.

AVA Online Web site for the American Vocational Association includes information about AVA's School-to-Work Partners coalition, its School-to-Work Technical Assistance program and products for promoting school-to-work initiatives. It also links to AVA's School-to-Work Reporter.
