In the Illinois State Report Cards data for schools, there are fields that refer to 'Subregions'? What are subregions?

Here are a couple of reports cards that use subregions:

So far, I've only seen subregions defined for Chicago schools.

    Could you link to the exact spreadsheet/PDF that contains the keyword? I could not find 'Subregion' anywhere.

  • I can't say for Illinois, but I know that in my county in Maryland, they're fixed areas for planning purposes separate from the representative districts for voting -- because the districts have to change with each census.

I think these subregions are CPS 'networks':

From http://www.cps.edu/fy13budget/pages/Schoolsandnetworks.aspx

Networks/Collaboratives District-run schools in CPS are organized into five geographic collaboratives – North/Northwest, West, Southwest, South, and Far South – and then further divided into 19 Networks, which provide administrative support, strategic direction and leadership development to the schools within each Network. There are 13 elementary Networks, four high school Networks, one K-12 Network that serves both elementary and high schools, and one alternative Network for alternative schools.
