General Information

Special Services Mission

The mission of the Special Services Department in School District 69 is to advocate for all children. We recognize that success is different for each child, therefore we provide a continuum of services to meet the needs of our diverse student population.


Multi-Tier System of Supports

School District 69’s multi-tier system of supports (MTSS) uses the problem solving model and an integrated data assessment system to inform decisions at each tier of service delivery. Our full continuum of services range from accommodations and modifications in curriculum and instructional strategies within the general education classroom to consultation from related services, co-taught classrooms, small group settings to focus on specific knowledge and skills, district-wide self-contained programs, and special education schools.

We embrace and support inclusive instructional practices. These practices are designed to provide special services within the context of the general education classroom to the greatest extent possible. This means all students have membership in a general education classroom and will receive appropriate services with school staff and parents working as a collaborative team. Our goal is to provide appropriate services and supports to allow students to be independent and access the general education curriculum with their neighborhood peers.
