Welcome to the Whiteside Area Career Center
The Whiteside Area Career Center (WACC) is one of about sixty regional vocational systems in Illinois.

WACC is governed by a Board of Control comprised of the superintendents from each member school district. At present, sixteen local public school districts and three private schools are members of this cooperative joint agreement.
Career and technical programming is provided at member high schools or at the Whiteside Area Career Center. Occupational clusters include agricultural occupations, business and related occupations, family and consumer sciences, health occupations and industrial/technical occupations.
