Document Number: 2349State Profiles: Building Inclusive School-to-Work Systems - The National Transition Alliance for Youth with Disabilities (NTA) has selected eight states (Colorado, Maryland, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Oregon, Rhode Island, Vermont) to describe their efforts for including youth with disabilities in school-to-work projects. This information is useful for other states that are still engaged in the school-to-work process and are looking for strategies that will help to sustain their work. These eight states were selected because of their years of experience implementing school-to-work practices, their close relationship with their State Transition System Change Initiative, and their willingness to share information with others.
