Special Education

District 10 provides a continuum of free special education and related services for children ages three to fifteen who have exceptional needs. The goal of special education and related services is to provide an appropriate education that supports a child’s diverse academic and behavioral needs. An Individualized Education Program (IEP) is developed on a yearly basis in collaboration with parents, special education staff, and general education teachers. The IEP includes annual goals specific to increasing a child’s ability. District 10 is committed to educating students with non-disabled peers to the maximum extent possible.

District 10 is a member of the North DuPage Special Education Cooperative, most often referred to as NDSEC. Through NDSEC, students who are found eligible can attend programs in cooperating districts. The district houses some programs as a fulfillment to member responsibilities. 

If you think your child may be eligible for special education, please contact your school’s principal.
