About Regional Center for Change

Regional Center for Change (C4C) is an ROE #47 school. C4C was founded in 1997 as a Regional Safe School providing alternative education to students expelled or suspended from their home school. In 2019 C4C combined campuses with Nachusa alternative School. C4C is an alternative education program for students in Lee, Ogle, and Whiteside counties who suffer from behavioral, emotional, and social concerns. Small class sizes, individualized digital curriculum, and trauma-informed practices are hallmarks of our program. 

Program Options

  • RSSP - Serves middle and high school students who have been suspended or expelled from their home school

  • Options - Serves middle and high school students who struggle to meet academic and social expectations due to a variety of social and emotional concerns 

  • FLEX - Alternative education for students who have not met the academic expectations of high school. FLEX sites at Dixon High School, Oregon High School, Rochelle High School, and Stillman Valley High School

We invite you to explore our site and discover the academics and community Regional Center for Change provides to each and every student.
