The School-to-Work Opportunity Act of 1994 (P.L. 103-239; hereafter, STWOA), which was signed into law in the U.S. on May 4, 1994, calls for major restructuring and significant systemic changes. These changes are intended to facilitate the creation of a universally available, high-quality, school-to-work transition system that enables all students in the U.S. to successfully enter and function within work settings. The STWOA makes special reference to the conviction that all students have equal opportunity to participate in systems advocated by the STWOA. In addition, the participation of youth with disabilities in various programs of the act must be guided by the already-established transition service requirements of Part B of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA; Pub. L. No. 101-476) (National Transition Network, 1994).
