What is Rooms?

Illini Central has implemented a new communication tool called "Rooms". This unified communication system is for parents and guardians to communicate with their student's teachers. Rooms is accessible through the Illini Central CUSD 189 app.

Why is Illini Central CUSD 189 implementing Rooms?

Illini Central is making staying in touch with teachers and class information easier. Using the Illini Central CUSD 189 app, you can easily switch from the district and school information to Rooms, where you can see your student's classes and engage directly with teachers.

Rooms can be accessed via the web and from our district app, which is free and can be used from both Apple and Android phones.

Rooms eliminates the need for multiple apps like Seesaw, GroupMe, Remind 101, and others like them.
