Special Services at Pleasantdale
District 107 provides a continuum of special education programs and related services within and outside the general education setting to meet the unique learning needs of our students. Placement in separate special education classes is considered only when the services needed by the student to meet his/her goals cannot be adequately implemented within the general education classroom.
If a student requires more specialized instruction and programming not available within the school district, District 107 is committed to seeking other appropriate placement options outside ofthe school district. This includes both public and private facilities.
The Pleasantdale 107 Support Programs guide offers a thorough description of the services available.
