Welcome to the North Cook Intermediate Service Center (ISC) and your Regional Office of Education! It is my pleasure to serve as the Executive Director of the North Cook ISC and to direct the many support programs offered by our agency. North Cook ISC was designated by the Illinois Legislature in 2010 to serve as the Regional Office of Education (ROE) for northern Cook County Illinois as ROE #5.
As the local ROE, North Cook offers Professional Development for Administrators and Teachers, as well as services in Teacher Licensure, Facility Improvements – Permitting, Facility Safety/Health Life Safety, Bus Driver Training, Truancy and McKinney-Vento support, Regional Safe Schools, and ISBE Compliance Visits.
The North Cook ISC serves 39 school districts -- 7 high school and 32 elementary districts -- as well as several special education co-ops in our region. Our goal is to be the premier service provider to the public school districts within our area of the State. To reach that goal, we ask for your suggestions and feedback about how we can improve on our performance.
Again, welcome to North Cook ISC and please remember, SERVICE is our middle name!
Bruce R. Brown, Ed.D.
Executive Director of North Cook ISC
