NET Gain No. 2: School to Work
(November/December 1995)

In the first installment of NET Gain, we mentioned two e-mail discussion lists that focus on school-to-work issues (S2WTP and STWNet). This month we list additional electronic resources for school-to-work information, from local, state, regional, and national sources.

From Local STW Sites

Some local school-to-work grantees have set up electronic information servers:

The S2WTP Gopher at Central Community College in Grand Island, Nebraska, contains information on state projects and includes a calendar of upcoming conferences.

The "Texas Tool Box" World Wide Web page from the North Harris Montgomery Community College District in Houston, Texas, contains information on benchmarking and includes a list of state school-to-work coordinators.

From the State of Florida

Florida has resources available via the World Wide Web, Gopher, and telnet:

The Florida School-to-Work Information Navigator contains extensive information on national and statewide activities. It includes online publications and resource lists, as well as pointers to Florida's gopher and telnet resources.

The Florida School-to-Work Clearinghouse gopher contains most of the information provided by the Information Navigator Web site. The Florida STW Clearinghouse Database is a catalog of all the materials housed in the Florida Tech Prep Clearinghouse collection that are available for loan.

From a Regional Educational Lab

The North Central Regional Educational Laboratory in Oak Brook, Illinois, has a school-to-work transition page as part of its Pathways to School Improvement Web server. It contains a few NCREL publications, and pointers to other useful Web resources.

From the U.S. Department of Education

The U.S. Department of Education's School-to-Work gopher contains some useful background information, but it has not been updated for over a year.

"NET Gain" is compiled by David Carlson, Peter Seidman (NCRVE, University of California at Berkeley) and Judith Wagner (ERIC/ACVE, Ohio State University). An online version of this column will be available on the NCRVE World Wide Web server ( Readers are encouraged to let the authors know about any changes in the resources listed, as well as about other resources they find useful.
