The Illinois State Board of Education and the Regional Offices of Education are hosting a series of informational sessions around the state so that parents and community members can provide their input on how ESSA is implemented in Illinois.
The new law, which replaces the No Child Left Behind Act, is scheduled to take full effect in 2017-18. These sessions are the first of several opportunities that the public will have to discuss the law with Illinois education officials.
The session for North Cook County will be held on Tuesday, April 26 from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. at The Fairview South School District Auditorium, 7040 North Laramie, Skokie, IL 60077. The contact person is Dr. Cindy Whittaker (cwhittaker@Fairview.k12.il.us).
