ICAPS/IET and Bridge Learning Communities

To support the FY21 ICCB IET grant recipients and to fulfill the mission of the Transitions Academy, we are excited to announce the formation of an Illinois ICAPS/IET Learning Community and a Bridge Learning Community.  All programs are invited to be a part of either of these learning communities to share information, ask questions, and earn from one another.  All ICCB IET grant recipients for FY21 are required to be a part of the ICAPS/IET group.

Details of the learning communities:

  • ICAPS/IETs meets second Thursday of each month at 2:00 pm (CST)

  • Bridge meets third Thursday of each month at 2:00 pm (CST)

  • Meetings begin in January 2021 and run through July 2021

  • Format will vary each month and will include directed discussions with guiding questions and presentations from experienced ICAPS programs


Look for more information coming soon on how to join these learning communities!
