We are a proud member district of Northwest Suburban Special Education Organization. Their mission is to propel students with special needs to be actively engaged citizens through dynamic family, school, and community partnerships. Every year we partner with NSSEO to survey parents with students receiving special education services in our district. This survey provides valuable feedback on programs, support systems, and communication. In addition to helping us improve our programs, it also helps NSSEO tailor family-based supports. We will reach out when the next school year's survey becomes live.
