    Mission

    It is the mission of the Student Services Department to work as a team to assess, modify and meet all students' academic, emotional and behavioral needs to enable them to reach their full potential in a supportive learning environment.


    About 12% of District 41 children access Special Education, from those who need speech therapy to those with profound disabilities needing highly individualized, comprehensive programs.

    In compliance with state and federal law, District 41 provides free, appropriate special educational services for eligible children who may have a disability that adversely impacts educational progress. Glen Ellyn School District 41 offers a full continuum of special education and related services to students found eligible for special education, and is committed to educating all students with disabilities with children who are not disabled to the maximum extent appropriate.

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

    If you have specific questions about your child, please contact your child’s case manager or your school’s assistant principal. Click to the Student Services staff directory

    The district is one of seven member districts of The Cooperative Association for Special Education (C.A.S.E.).       Click to the CASE website
