When traveling to the Tri-County Institute, please note that State Route 161 on the west side of Centralia has been closed for a bridge replacement project. The site below has a few more details:

Presenter Handouts are available on the ROE's website:

The Tri-County Institute will be held on Friday, February 15, 2019 at the Centralia High School. Refreshments will be served beginning at 7:30 a.m. Six sessions will be provided offering participants a wide variety of professional development topics from 8:10 – 2:00 p.m.

Please note paper copies of the booklet and any handouts for sessions will not be provided. Participants will need to download that information from the ROE site. The booklet will be available in early February and handouts for various sessions will be posted as they are received. Please remember to print out the session sticker and evaluation sheets to bring along with you to verify your attendance. Once the sticker verification sheet and evaluation form is turned in to your superintendent, he/she will provide you with your PD credits.

Due to regulations by ISBE, some sessions will be awarded an attendance sticker, but will not be counted toward PD hours. Any sessions that do not count as PD are indicated with a notation at the end of the session description. Participants will be able to earn up to 6 clock hours depending on the number of sessions attended.

Names of the prize winners will be drawn from the list of participants that was submitted by district superintendents. Names of winners will be placed on the screen in the cafetorium. Check to see if you are a winner! Prizes may be picked up in the main office after 11:30 a.m.

Parking will be located in the rear parking lot of the high school. Additional parking will be located at Calumet Street Christian Church at 2240 East Calumet, Centralia with shuttle bus service beginning at 7:30 a.m. The parking area in front of the school is reserved for those presenters arriving from outside the Centralia area. A parking pass will be required to be presented to the parking attendants for the front lot. We ask that you do not park on the streets or parking lots in the area that are not the property of the high school.

Due to the Closure of Route 161 at Crooked Creek Bridge near Centralia you will need to take an alternative route if you are coming to Centralia from the west. (See for details and updates.)

Here are some alternative routes:

  • Use Route 50 to Sandoval and take Route 51 South to get to Centralia
  • Use Route 177 to Irvington and take Route 51 North to get to Centralia

Thank you and we hope you enjoy the day!
