Supporting Education Agencies & Associations

In addition to collaborating with Regional Offices of Education, Intermediate Service Centers, and Illinois education associations to provide many of our services to school districts, schools, and school personnel, the Learning Technology Center also provides several services directly to education service agencies and associations.

ROE/ISC Service Catalog

Services are offered at no or low cost, with the purpose of enabling organizations that support schools districts to better serve their stakeholders. These services are exclusive to ROEs, ISCs, and Education Associations unless otherwise noted, and a full list of LTC services is available on our main LTC Service Catalog page.
Professional Learning Workshops and Presenters

LTC staff provide in-person and virtual workshops, webinars, and sessions at conferences for ROEs and ISCs. In most cases, professional learning events are provided at no cost through the support of the Illinois State Board of Education’s agreement with the LTC.

Phishing Tests

Routine phishing security tests are important to an organization’s cybersecurity posture as they help determine which users are vulnerable to real attacks. Phishing tests also create opportunities to educate employees. The LTC can send phishing emails and provide ROEs and ISCs with a detailed report of the outcomes. The LTC also provides phishing tests to Tier 3 and 4 schools.

Eligibility: ROEs, ISCs, Tier 3 and 4 Schools
Cost: No Cost
