From McHenry County:
Regional Office of Education Relocating to McHenry
WOODSTOCK, Ill. – The McHenry County Regional Office of Education will move to a new location in the City of McHenry effective Wednesday, Dec. 14.
The Regional Office of Education will relocate from the County Administration Building in Woodstock to a 3,100-square-foot rented office at 408 S. Route 31 in McHenry.
The new and larger facility will allow the office to incorporate a Pearson testing lab in order to administer GED exams, state teaching licensure exams, and about 200 other industry exams.
“Previously, county residents who needed a test administered through a Pearson testing center had to travel to surrounding counties.
This is another positive component in attracting and serving the educators of McHenry County,” Regional Superintendent Diana Hartmann said.
The Regional Office of Education is responsible for duties such as teacher certification and background checks, truancy enforcement, professional development for educators and administrators, administering GED exams, conducting school safety inspections, and auditing the county’s school districts for fiscal viability and adherence to state curriculum requirements.
Fingerprinting for school employee background checks will not be available on Dec. 12 and Dec. 13 as the office completes the move.
The county’s Finance Department will move into the 2,000-square-foot space at the Administration Building the ROE will be vacating.
