Welcome to the Special Education Department

The Special Education Department works to ensure that all eligible students with disabilities are provided a free appropriate public education in the least restrictive environment. We strive to ensure that School District 27J is in compliance with the Federal Law - Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). We believe all students are general education students first and that Special Education is a service – not a place.
