FY 2020 Consolidated District Plan
The Consolidated District Plan (CDP), which is the first phase of the IL ePlan, is now open on eGMS for fiscal year 2020 grants. The Consolidated District Plan allows grantees to answer one set of planning questions to meet the plan requirements for 12 federal formula grants, including Title III. Districts applying for Title III funds must have an approved CDP on file with ISBE in order for their Title III Grant Application to be approved. For additional information, visit www.isbe.net/ileplan​

Individuals will be able to register online for the workshops.  Registration is limited to three individuals per district.​​

​​During the year, this professional learning calendar will be updated through the IRC website, under ISBE events via the IRC, as new ISBE sponsored events are offered.
