The Illinois Programs of Study Expectations Tool is designed to be an interactive
instrument to help educational partners ensure they are meeting both the federal
Program of Study (POS) requirements and the high standards set in Illinois. It is
intended to guide a Partnership Team – or an internal self-review team – through the
various expectations and quality indicators for a single POS. The intended audience
for this tool is primarily those educational partners funded by Perkins and should be
representative of those listed as part of your Partnership Team.

The tool is organized around nine quality components for implementation and
evaluation of a Program of Study.
