Welcome to the Whiteside Area Career Center
The Whiteside Area Career Center (WACC) is one of about sixty regional vocational systems in Illinois. The systems were organized in 1986-87 to coordinate and provide regional career and technical programming among its member, collect and report data to the Illinois State Board of Education, act as the flow-through of federal and state resources, and market career and technology education throughout its region.
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.
