This selective, second-year Pathways to Results grant will take teams beyond the partnership and planning processes of the first year grant and move into a structured and supported implementation process leveraging the analysis and improvement ideas generated in previous participation of the PTR process. In addition to funding, the grant will provide supportive evaluation, venues for peer learning, assistance with dissemination to the larger community of practice, professional development on major evidence-based, high-impact trends in the field, and documentation and dissemination of learning and outcomes. The ultimate goals of this Phase 2 grant include:
- Implementation and dissemination of significant improvements in pathways and programs deemed important to local and state contexts;
- Collection of data documenting what works in different local and state contexts; and,
- Testing, documentation, and feedback on the implementation of Career Pathways and Programs of Study in Illinois.
