Mission Statement

    The Eastern Illinois Education for Employment System will offer an activity-based educational program which provides  a common core of cognitive, psychomotor and affective skills appropriate for all youth and a more specialized set of transferable skills appropriate for some youth who will enter a career soon after high school graduation.  Programs will be organized in such a way that students can obtain general technological competencies which span the occupational spectra and are important for youth with different interests and abilities (college and non-college bound). At the more advanced grade levels, the career and technical education  program will offer an organized set of transferable concepts and skills such that students have alternatives for direct entry into the workplace or furthering their education in preparation for a career.  The program will emphasize the application of the humanities and technological studies in a manner such that students understand how learning relates to applications in real-world settings.

About Us

    The Eastern Illinois Education for Employment System is a consortium of 27 school districts collaborating to update and upgrade Career and Technical education programs.  In addition, the System provides guidance and resources for career awareness and development activities, K-12.  The System is governed by a Board of Control comprised of the 27 superintendents from the participating school districts.  The System has 28 approved programs with 181 courses.  Career and Technical education programs were developed with representatives from business and industry.  The representatives continue to work with teachers from the region to analyze job related tasks and determine what skills need to be taught to prepare students for entry level employment.  The System's programs are articulated with Lake Land College and specific agreements for advanced placement and dual credit at the community college are continually being developed.

    Our service area includes school districts located in East Central Illinois in the counties of Clark, Coles, Cumberland, Douglas, Edgar, Effingham, Moultrie and Shelby.  The high schools range in size from 70 to 1,000 students.
