Our mission is to advocate for education, provide leadership, perform regulatory functions and coordinate state and local services for educators, school districts and the community.

We support teachers & leaders to guide continuous instructional improvements.

Our office establishes educational partnerships that offer best practices for enhancing student achievement. We offer a wide variety of activities including, institutes, workshops, conferences, networking, technical assistance, information dissemination, and consulting to meet the needs of our schools.  

We ensure that our school districts can orchestrate strategies for lifelong learners.

Part of our Alternative Program division is our Youth Outreach Workers; counselors that assist schools and students with truancy prevention. The Kane County ROE also offers the Equal Chance Program which advocates for homeless student education. This program is administered by the Area One Lead Program and funded by a grant from the Illinois State Board of Education through the McKinney–Vento Homeless Assistance Act of 2001. Please visit our services tab to learn more about our Alternative Programs.

We connect with local & national non-profits and associations that support education.

Our biggest annual celebration is our Educator Of The Year Awards Ceremony in which we honor teachers, administrators and support staff. To learn more about our involvement and events with external organizations and our school districts, please subscribe to our semimonthly newsletter and visit us on our social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and LinkedIn.
