SPECIAL EDUCATION TRANSPORTATION

  • Some students may be eligible to receive special transportation to and from school as a related service, per their IEP. Students are typically eligible for special transportation if:

    • The student attends a special education program that is not located at his/her school
    • Due to his/her disability, he/she would be unable to get to school independently in an age-appropriate manner. Although not exhaustive, examples of disabilities that might prevent a student from getting to school independently include cognitive impairments, autism, and/or physical impairments that impact a student's gross motor skills/ability to ride the bus.
    • The student is attending the Distirct's Early Childhood program as a special education student.

     

    District 25 currently uses taxi cabs to transport students who require specialized transportation beyond what can be accommodated on a school bus. For more information on special transportation, please contact Laura Comastro at (847) 758-4888 or lcomastro@sd25.org.
