The Fall Portability Panel is scheduled for Wednesday, November 2, 2022. The submission deadline for documentation for portability is October 1, 2022.
In partnership with the Illinois Community College Board, Illinois Board of Higher Education, and Education Systems Center, ISBE announces the recent adoption of the
Transitional English Course Parameters, Competencies, and Policies document. The design of these course competencies is intended to guide secondary school districts in partnership with local community colleges to implement a transitional English course successfully. Transitional English courses can be used as a fourth-year Language Arts class to meet the state and local high school graduation requirements either as a new course or through the transformation of an existing fourth year English course.

To support the implementation of Transitional English, a Statewide Advisory Group has been established in partnership with ISBE, ICCB, and IBHE that is comprised of secondary and postsecondary representatives that advise on the approach for professional development, curricular resources needed, and a review of materials currently in use by communities implementing Transitional English.
