Illinois Approved Partner List


Lead Partners Overview

Lead Partners may offer services and programs designed to assist school districts [local education agencies (LEAs)] with school improvement efforts in Illinois’ persistently lowest achieving schools. These qualified entities may be contracted for these services and programs in one of two ways:

Lead Partners are responsible for implementing coherent, whole school reform efforts that integrate structural and programmatic interventions, including daily on-site support, leadership, and assistance in the participating school and LEA. Both the LEA and the Lead Partner share accountability for the successful implementation of the selected intervention model with the ultimate goal of substantially raising student achievement. Continuation of service by a Lead Partner beyond the initial period requires available federal funding, continued status as an approved ISBE Lead Partner, and the production of evidence of significantly improved student achievement and/or achievement of the identified project goals.
