Lee, Ogle & Whiteside Have Combined

The new Regional Office of Education #47 is a combined office covering Lee, Ogle & Whiteside Counties. We have recently joined forces in one administrative office, some of our staff members have moved to new offices or new buildings, and we are launching this new website. Please be patient with us as we transition to serving our larger region. Thank you!
