Special Services

Community High School District 99 is a member of SASED (School Association for Special Education in DuPage County).  Special Education involvement is directed through the local school attendance area.  Procedures for referral and placement are directed by the Counseling and Student Support Services Department.  District 99 and its associated districts in SASED have programs for students age 3 through 21.

Some of the programs offered in the local high schools and/or through SASED, the special education cooperative, are for students eligible as:

  • Cognitively Disabled
  • Deaf-Blind  
  • Other Health Impaired
  • Learning Disabled
  • Autistic
  • Hearing Impaired
  • Emotionally Disabled
  • Physically Impaired
  • Multiply Disabled
  • Traumatic Brain Injured

Placement into any programs/courses is determined at an Eligibility Review where an Individual Education Plan (IEP) is developed to address the need for more intensive instruction.
