Transitions Academy FY18

Thank you for attending the Transitions Academy 2017.   The Transitions Academy was held on November 8 – 9, 2017 at the Thelma Keller Convention Center in Effingham, Illinois.  For your convenience we have archived presentation material from the Transitions Academy for your continued access.

The Transitions Academy is designed to assist colleges and partnerships working on developing Bridge and ICAPS (Integrated Career and Academic Preparation System) programs by increasing awareness of the expanding partnership between Adult Education and Career and Technical Education as it relates to the ICAPS models, Illinois Bridge programs, and Illinois Programs of Study.
