Our goal: to increase the proportion of adults in Illinois with high-quality degrees and credentials to 60% by the year 2025.

  • About Us

    ​The Illinois P-20 Council was established by the legislature in 2009 to foster collaboration among state agencies, education institutions, local schools, community groups, employers, taxpayers, and families, and to collectively identify needed reforms to develop a seamless and sustainable statewide system of quality education and support. The "P" in our name represents Preschool and "20" stands for grade 20, education after college.

  • Get Involved

    ​You can play a part to help our students gain the skills they need for the 21st century. Join our statewide partners and collaborators on the Family, Youth, and Community Engagement Committee. Stakeholders include students, families, organizations, community groups, and business partners. Participation may be as simple as receiving e-communications or helping to plan meetings and presentations.

  • Reports and Resources

    ​Here you will find useful links to Illinois and national organizations and initiatives, P-20 reports and resources, and selected research to help develop a seamless and sustainable statewide system of quality education and support, from birth through adulthood, to maximize students' educational attainment, opportunities for success in the workforce, and contributions to their local communities.
