AOEC Programs

A.O.E.C.

A.O.E.C. is self-paced, computer-assisted, and student centered. There are two different class sessions for Middle and High School students- split into AM and PM classes. The program was developed for students who have difficulty fitting in the regular school environment due to disruptive life issues and family responsibilities. Students are admitted through an intake interview and review of their prior academic work. Students must be reading at the 8th grade level to be admitted and have no serious discipline record. For further information regarding the A.O.E.C. program contact the main office at (224) 303-2860.

Ombudsman

The A.O.E.C. educational program is built on the premise that regular attendance is vital and mandatory for students' success in school. Chronic absence from school is the single and greatest cause of poor academic achievement. If the student is between the ages of 6 and 17, his or her chronic absence also violates the State of Illinois' compulsory attendance laws. Ensuring students maintain regular attendance requires a cooperative effort between the student, parents, and school personnel. A.O.E.C. students are provided with multiple interventions in order to support student learning. These interventions consist of weekly conferences with classroom teachers/case manager, academic contracts with school support staff, and meetings with school administration. Students who exhibit excessive absences or do not meet academic expectations for credit recovery are referred to receive educational services at Ombudsman Institute in Waukegan. For further information regarding the Ombudsman program contact Dr. Charmaine Harris, Coordinator of Student Outreach at Charris@wps60.org.

Regional Office of Education

ROE (Regional Office of Education Safe School Project) is located in Zion. The program was developed to serve disruptive students under 17 years of age who are given another chance in lieu of expulsion. As a result of the intake process, an individual learning plan is developed for each student and is monitored monthly. For further information regarding the ROE program contact Dr. Charmaine Harris, Coordinator of Student Outreach at Charris@wps60.org.
