CENTER GUIDELINES FOR ALL KCOEC GROUPS
LOCAL SCHOOLS: (Sandwich, Plano, Yorkville) districts are notified of available attendance dates by the Kendall-Grundy Regional Office of Education (ROE). These districts then inform the ROE of the specific schools, grade levels and teachers that wish to attend on each date. This process takes place in the spring, prior to the end of each school year.
OTHER GROUPS: (school, adult, other youth) may register on a space available basis. Please CONTACT The center for more information.
TEACHER REGISTRATION AND CONFIRMATION: REGISTER ON-LINE
Teachers will be sent a printed Registration Form along with a Scope and Sequence outlining our programs. You may also use the On-line Registration. The printed Registration Form must be returned 30 days prior to your attendance (exceptions are made for those attending in September). There are always schools looking for additional slots. If we do not receive this request form on time, your slot will become available to other groups and may be removed from the schedule. Additionally, please call the center two weeks prior to confirm your attendance. Late or missing paperwork may result in the cancellation of your program.
STAFFING AND GROUP SIZE:
The KCOEC was originally a Scout Lodge, which has been converted over to an education center and employs two staff. As such, it is designed to serve a maximum of two classes per scheduled date for a full day program. This allows our staff members to teach all lessons. This also provides us some flexibility to utilize our limited indoor space and continue programming, should the weather become an issue while you are in attendance. This is especially important between mid-October and mid-Aprilwhen temperatures are
