The special education department here in Community High School District 117 is committed to providing high-quality education in a supportive environment to students with special education needs.  Community High School District 117 believes all students can learn if given appropriate support and services.  We provide a continuum of programs and services to meet the needs of our students, as each student deserves an educational environment in which he or she can be most successful according to his or her individual needs.  

Students with disabilities may receive support and services under an Individualized Education Program (IEP).  Students with disabilities who do not qualify for an IEP under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act may qualify for support and services and/or protections under Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 if the student (i) has a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities, (ii) has a record of a physical or mental impairment, or (iii) is regarded as having a physical or mental impairment. Community High School District 117 adheres to all Federal and State rules and regulations pertaining to the availability and implementation of Special Education Services and 504 Services.  If you have any questions, please contact our staff.
