Abstract: This report presents results of an independently contracted evaluation of activities and services delivered under the School-to-Work Opportunities Act of 1994 (PL 103-239) by the Capital Area Education and Careers Partnership (the Partnership). School-to-Work activities (known as “School-to-Career” in Texas) are provided largely through 27 existing regional School-to-Career (STC).

Partnerships operating in the 28 Local Workforce Development Areas with funds provided by a five-year federal grant administered by the Texas Workforce Commission (TWC). As part of the Year Four (SFY 2001) grant, TWC required grantees to arrange an independent evaluation of their Year Three (SFY 2000) activities that included recommendations for program improvements; this report is in response to that requirement. Researchers conducted an evaluation of Year Three (September 1, 1999 through August 31, 2000) activities based on interviews and document analysis, continuing the approach taken in the Year One and Year Two Evaluation. The evaluation assesses the accomplishments, constraints and prospects of Partnership initiatives designed to help youth and young adults advance their educational and workplace achievements in pursuit of satisfying and productive careers.
