The National Secondary Transition Technical Assistance Center (NSTTAC) developed this Transition Institute Toolkit (PDF, 26 MB) to help state and local community teams design, plan, and implement a capacity building strategy, the transition institute. A transition institute is a capacity building approach that integrates professional development, data-based decision making, technical assistance, and strategic planning through a collaborative process. This toolkit is a practical guide for state leaders planning and implementing the Transition Institute Model (TIM). It provides you with descriptions of essential components of the TIM and detailed checklists and resources for use in planning your institute.
The Transition Institute Toolkit 2nd Edition Appendices provide downloadable documents that can be edited for the user's convenience. The cover and spine are provided if you wish to print your own Transition Institute Toolkit.
