    Arlington Heights School District 25 Early Childhood Program is a multi-aged preschool program that provides educational experiences for young children ages three to five years old that are residents of District 25. We offer experiences for students that are typically developing, at-risk for learning challenges and have special education needs. All students have an opportunity to play and learn together in an accepting and engaging environment using a developmentally-appropriate approach to instruction. More information on the District’s Early Childhood Program can be found here.


    The Early Childhood Special Education program serves children determined to be eligible for services through an evaluation process and IEP. These children are experiencing difficulty in one or more areas and have been identified as having a disability. Please use this Early Childhood Screening Request form if you have concerns about your child's development. 



    Screening and evaluation for students in kindergarten through 8th grade (typically ages 5 through 14 years) are provided at each District 25 school. Parents may request a screening or evaluation through their home school by contacting the principal at the school.  Evaluation requests should be made in writing. District 25 does utilize a Response to Intervention model and seeks to put tiered services and supports in place for any student who struggles with academic and/or behavioral  needs in the general education environment.


    Children receiving home school instruction or attending private or parochial schools located within District boundaries are also eligible for evaluation through the District. Requests for an evaluation should be directed to the Assistant Superintendent for Student Services at (847) 758-4875.  More information on evaluations and services for non-public school students can be found here.


    The purpose of an evaluation is to determine if a student is eligible for special education services and supports under one of 13 eligibility categories, as defined by the Illinois State Board of Education and the IDEA. If the student has a disability that impacts educational functioning and requires direct services and supports, the student will be eligible for an Individualized Education Plan (IEP).
