Florida Postsecondary Comprehensive Transition Programs (FPCTP)

2020 Virtual Florida Postsecondary Education Program Planning Institute (FLPEPPI)

November 17-20, 2020

This year’s FLPEPPI will include both live and recorded: (1) Evidence-based content and strategies around targeted areas of inclusive postsecondary education and capacity building (2) Networking and extended learning opportunities (3) Facilitated team planning to assess their current strengths and needs in order to plan for the future. There is no registration fee to attend this free event hosted by the Florida Center for Students with Unique Abilities. This event will be hosted using Whova.

The purpose of this Institute is to increase understanding of resources available for and facilitate planning and implementation of Florida Postsecondary Comprehensive Transition Programs (FPCTP) for students with intellectual disabilities in all types of postsecondary education institutions: universities, state and community colleges, and career tech centers.

This is a team-focused event for postsecondary education program planning teams representing a higher education institution or career tech district. Register your team of higher education faculty and staff, disability service providers, special populations coordinators, K-12 transition staff, parents, students, and/or other relevant stakeholders.

The institute format includes keynote sessions with postsecondary education leaders, breakout content sessions, facilitated team planning meetings, opportunities for your team to meet one-on-one with national and state content experts, and networking with colleagues from across the state whose innovative postsecondary education programs are serving students with intellectual disabilities and preparing them for employment. See our draft agenda for details.

All participants will be registered by team leader. Registration Deadline is October 16, 2020
