The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted students’ postsecondary outcomes. The Illinois State Board of Education and OneGoal​ are collaborating to offer a systemwide solution to increase students' college and career readiness. This is a unique opportunity for select districts to receive robust support to ensure more equitable postsecondary outcomes for students. Inaugural partners receive these benefits at no cost for the first two years.


  • Leaders will be equipped to develop effective and equitable system-wide strategies that invest their teams and deliver equitable outcomes for students. 
  • Students will see increased FASFA completion and early college coursework enrollment. 
  • Alumni will see increased postsecondary enrollment and persistence in multiple postsecondary pathways that lead to economic mobility and family-sustaining wages.​

"Postsecondary success is important because it is seen and valued within the community. With OneGoal’s program, we can see our students’ progression after they leave high school. I love numbers and data, and we’re gathering information to help drive our instruction. The timing of this partnership is perfect because the vision-setting work puts our district in a forward-thinking position as we head into the summer."

- Nicole Webb, Instructional Coach, Cahokia High School​​

​Build a Future of Opportunity


The model has a dual-track approach. First, it offers a Postsecondary Leadership Series for district and school leader teams. Then, OneGoal’s classroom-based model supports students during their Junior and Senior years to ensure they successfully enroll and persist in their postsecondary path of choice.​
