The Illinois Center for Specialized Professional Support (ICSPS) is OPEN! And will remain open. Our team is working remotely to support our partners, colleagues, and friends – and deliver quality professional development.
Over the past few weeks our world has been turned upside down with the growing concerns over COVID-19. While there is a call for social distancing and shelter-in-place, please know that ICSPS is here to support you. We will continue to hold learning communities, provide virtual learning opportunities, and share information to provide support during this time. These actions are intended to limit the disruption to academic and professional progress while following the current COVID-19 information available from the World Health Organization and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), as well as state and local health officials.
Please check back occasionally ICSPS will continue to update our communication as the situation changes. If you should have any questions, comments, or concerns please contact us at
