ROE CONSOLIDATION - JULY 1ST

The Illinois State Board of Education ordered consolidations of Regional Offices of Education. This consolidation takes place on July 1, 2015. The Christian-Montgomery Educational Service Region (ROE #10) will become part of the Bond-Fayette-Effingham Educational Service Region (ROE #3).

 

IL MATH-SCIENCE PARTNERSHIP GRANTS

All four of the Illinois Math Science Partnership grants that we applied for were funded! ROE 45 and ROE 50 will each be fiscal agents for one math and one science grant each. There are still quite a few unknowns at this point, but we do know the dates:

  • K-8 Math: July 13-17 (week 1) and July 20-24 (week 2) ~ 40 slots available
  • 9-12 Math: July 13-17 (week 1) and July 20-24 (week 2) ~ 40 slots available
  • K-12 Science: July 13, 14, 15; July 20, 21, 22; and July 27, 28, 29 ~ 80 slots available

The participating teachers will need to make a 3 year commitment to the grant and have administrative support from their school. There will also be at least 4 school year follow up workshop days.  The grant is expected to offer stipends, substitute reimbursement, iPads (or similar device), graduate credit, and other materials (to be determined).

Once we have more definite information, we will send out application information via our e-newsletter and list-serves. Watch this web page for details.

 

Be a part of the most informative, fun, and cost-effective summer conference you can find this close to home (Collinsville, IL). Where else can you see Robert Marzano, Todd Whitaker, Rick Wormeli, Jim Burgett, Tom Schimmer, Grace Dearborn, and many, many more?!
