District 99 is committed to providing a comprehensive continuum of educational services to all identified eligible students with a disability in order to maximize their academic achievement and acquire appropriate life skills to support their post-secondary goals. We have a critical responsibility to provide a structure that allows for equitable opportunities for all students in the least restrictive environment, tailored to their individual needs.
Lisa is located at the Administrative Services Center and works collaboratively with the building’s Special Services Department Chairs and T99’s Coordinator.
