District 211 logoThe District 211 Board of Education approved to change the name of a District 211 facility formerly known as District 211 Academy-North.

At its June 16, 2016 meeting the Board of Education approved to name the facility District 211 North Campus. This title allows programs occupying the building (District 211 Alternative Learning Academy and District 211 Academy-North) to cultivate their own identity.  Parents, students, community members, and staff members will benefit from each program at the site maintaining distinct individual names.

The name change comes after budget cuts forced the North Cook Regional Office of Education’s North Cook Young Adult Academy (NCYAA), a Regional Safe School program for general education students who have exhibited some instance of expellable misconduct, to move out of the facility effective at the end of the 2015-2016 school year. As a result, District 211 created its own program. This new District program, District 211 Alternative Learning Academy, will begin operation in August and enrollment will fluctuate between 25 and 30 students at any given time during the school year.
