Special Education Services
Special education services and supports are provided to students in the district who are found eligible by a qualified team. Services are provided in a number of settings, both inside and outside of the classroom. Special education services are also provided to students by our special education cooperative, The North DuPage Special Education Cooperative. Roselle School District 12 is also responsible for servicing students with disabilities in the two neighboring parochial schools, St. Walter School and Trinity Lutheran School in Roselle, IL.
Please see the NDSEC Website ndsec.org for information on services.
Some of the supports that we currently provide may include:
- Speech and Language Services
- Social Work services
- School-based Occupational Therapy and Physical Therapy
- Preschool Developmental Screening
- Resource Instructional Support
- Psychological services and/or case study evaluations
Individualized Education Programs (IEP)
An Individualized Education Program (IEP) is developed for each public school child who needs specialized services. The IEP is created after a child has been evaluated by a team of qualified professionals and found eligible to receive special education and related services. The child’s progress is measured, and the IEP is reviewed periodically and revised as necessary.
Children may qualify for special education and related services in 14 categories of disabilities:
- Developmental delay (age 3-9)
- Emotional disturbance
- Hearing impairment
- Intellectual disability
- Multiple disabilities
- Orthopedic impairment
- Other health impairment
- Specific learning disability
- Speech or language impairment
- Traumatic brain injury
- Visual impairment
Parents of students with IEPs should receive a Notice of Procedural Safeguards of Parents/Guardians of Students with Disabilities at least once a year, as well as under other circumstances, including upon your request. The document outlines the rights that are safeguarded by state and federal law.
Notice Regarding Service Logs
Students with disabilities may receive related services as part of their individual education programs (IEPs). The school district will maintain related service logs that record the type and number of minutes of the related service(s) administered to such students. Copies of any related services logs will be available to parents/guardians at their child’s annual review IEP meeting. Parents/guardians of students with disabilities may also request copies of their child’s related service logs at any time.Special Education and Section 504Students with disabilities who do not qualify for an individualized education program, as required by the federal Individuals with Disabilities Education Act and implementing provisions of the School Code, may qualify for services under Section 504 of the federal Rehabilitation Act of 1973 if the child (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.
