The North Cook ISC is entrusted with assessing compliance of local school districts and recognized non-public schools in the state of Illinois. This process consists of a systematic review of district documentation and record compliance mandates in relationship to state and federal laws and The Illinois School Code. The culmination of our visit results in a designation reported on the IWAS website. The compliance process is viewed as an opportunity to improve operations and support the programs that deliver quantitative and quality educational experiences and services to our students in the North Cook Region.
During the 2016-17 School Year ISBE, in cooperation with several ROE’s around the state, North Cook beta-tested a new online format for the School Evaluation document previously used during compliance visits and rolled it out to all the ROE’s for use during 2017-18. Having already been through the 2017-18 and 2018-19 school year, we can happily report that the online system has worked well for both us, and the districts. You can view the ONLINE PROCESS below for 2019-20.
