Plan to Attend the ROE #12 Safety and Security Summit
With the uncertainty of our times, school officials must be prepared to partner with their local first responders like never before. Likewise, every serious conversation about student safety must include a discussion of building security. The ROE #12 School Safety and Security Summit will provide an opportunity for both school administrators and first-responders to dialogue and hear presentations regarding four aspects of school safety. Each district is asked to bring a representative from their local first-responders. This event is open to those in law enforcement to attend as well. Speakers will address a different aspect of school safety and security. Among topics to be presented include resources for digitally-formatted school safety plans, security shelters (which can be used in weather situations or in an active shooter scenario), and active shooter response time mitigation technology. A period for Q & A will be provided. Opportunities for school districts to act as pilot sites may be available. Lunch will be provided. Plan now to attend on Wednesday, February 4th, at Highland Church of Christ, 500 West Highland Avenue, Robinson. Click HERE for more info and to register!

Even folks who use our services on a regular basis don't really have a good appreciation of all we do here at ROE #12. This video will hopefully give our constituents a little better idea. We do a lot, but everything we do...it's all about kids!
Illinois Vision 20/20 is Launched
Education is an investment in our children’s future, our state’s future, and our nation’s future. It is our responsibility as educators to reflect upon the current state of education in Illinois and take action to create an education system that meets the needs of all students.
Many times statewide organizations are better known for what they oppose rather than those things for which they stand. In November 2012, the Illinois Association of School Administrators (IASA) initiated a visioning process in partnership with the Illinois Principals Association (IPA), the Illinois Association of School Business Officials (IASBO), the Illinois Association of School Boards (IASB), the Superintendents’ Commission for the Study of Demographics and Diversity (SCSDD), and the Illinois Association of Regional Superintendents of Schools (IARSS) to unite the education community and to develop a long-range blueprint for improving public education in Illinois. Together we stand for excellence in education for all Illinois children.
Based on the pillars of 1) highly effective educators, 2) 21st Century learning, 3) shared accountability, and 4) equitable and adequate funding, Illinois Vision 20/20 provides the framework for making significant, positive change for public education in Illinois. Learn more about this exciting initiative HERE. Here's a video that provides a quick overview.
Our children's futures depend on it!
