SPECIAL EDUCATION

Core Purpose:

In partnership with our families and communities, Glenview School District 34 will educate all students to reach their highest potential.

 

Vision:

  • All students are general education students first
  • Special education is a service for students with an identified disability
  • Special educators (including related service providers) utilize specialized instruction for the purpose of acquiring the necessary skills to master grade level standards


Individuals with Disabilities Act (IDEA)

Individuals with Disabilities Act (IDEA) was passed by Congress to ensure all students with disabilities ages 3-21 would receive a free and appropriate public education to meet their individual and unique learning needs.
