Transition Career Partnerships & Move On When Ready
Secondary to Postsecondary Transitions


Transition Career Partnership (formerly Education Career Partnerships) is designed to prepare students for college and career opportunities leading students to postsecondary institutions for an industry recognized certification or licensure, an associate and/or higher college degree, and successful employment. Move On When Ready is a new dual enrollment opportunity for students to attend a postsecondary institution full-time during their junior and/or senior year of high school and receive high school credit and college credit simultaneously while attending college classes on the college campus, full-time.
