Student Services & Support

The Student Services Department provides a full continuum of services in the areas of Special Education and Section 504. These services are provided to students who meet specific eligibility requirements outlined by the Federal and State Rules and Regulations. Decisions regarding implementation of services are determined by IEP and 504 teams.

The goal of special education and related services is to support each eligible child and address identified individual needs. An Individualized Education Program (IEP) is developed in collaboration with parents, general education teachers, and special education staff on an annual basis.

We offer the following services:

  • Speech and Language
  • Occupational Therapy
  • Physical Therapy
  • Psychological/Social Work Services
  • Hearing Itinerants
  • Assistive Technology (AT)
  • Vision Itinerants
  • Adaptive Physical Education
  • Academic Support
  • Nursing


If you, as a parent, have concerns about your student's progress or are seeking information about an IEP, please contact either your student's school team or the Student Services Department at 847-842-3507.

*School personnel who provide related services to students are required to maintain written logs that contain the service provided, the date and the number of minutes administered. These related service logs must be provided to parents/guardians during the student’s annual review IEP meeting and also anytime upon request. These service logs are considered part of a student’s temporary school records.

*Students with disabilities who do not qualify for an individualized education program under the federal Individuals with Disabilities Education Act, may qualify for services under Section 504 of the federal Rehabilitation Act of 1973 if the student (i) has a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities, (ii) has a record of a physical or mental impairment, or (iii) is regarded as having a physical or mental impairment.
