State ABE Transition Systems Report: Transitioning Adults to Opportunity

November 1, 2012
The U.S. Department of Education’s Policy to Performance project was funded in 2009 to build the capacity of state adult basic education (ABE) staff to develop and implement policies and practices that would support an ABE transition system. Prior to this project, state adult education offices were beginning to work with higher education and workforce development partners in aligning their services and policies to enable individuals to attain postsecondary credentials and earn family-sustaining incomes. However, these efforts varied in approach and intensity. Policy to Performance was designed to provide ABE state staff with strategies and tools they could use in working with their interagency partners to align services and policies that would result in a coherent set of activities that would comprise a state ABE transition system. Policy to Performance state activities were conducted during the period July 2009 to July 2012. Kratos Learning and its partner, Abt Associates, carried out the project.
