Philip Rock Center and School has been authorized by Illinois State Board of Education to admit out-of-state students. PRC was notified last week that PRC's proposed 600 Regulations to Admit Out-of-State Students successfully passed the hearing process with ISBE and the Joint Commission on Administrative Rules (JCAR). This has been a process that has taken well over a year to accomplish, but is now a reality and PRC can expect to grow in students and revenue once PRC completes some additional paperwork. Importantly, qualified Illinois children have first priority for admission.
