The Student Services Department is committed to providing support and services to students, parents, staff and administration consistent with federal and state mandates as well as best practices. Elmhurst District 205 supports the rights of all individuals to be educated to the extent appropriate in general education settings, and attempts to be as inclusive as possible in its practices in serving students with special needs. Parents please note: IEP's are to be reviewed, at a minimum, annually by your child's IEP team (including you). Eligibility is to be reviewed every three years. The timeline as set forth by IDEA and ISBE is sixty school days, from the date of consent to the eligibility meeting. If you request an IEP meeting, that meeting must be convened within ten school days. IDEA and ISBE require the school district to provide you with ten days notice prior to convening any IEP meeting and to convene the meeting in less than ten days, your written consent is required. If you have questions, please contact any of the special education supervisors listed above. Thank you.
