As Director of Special Services, I am responsible for overseeing that all children identified with a disability under the Individuals with Disabilities Act (IDEA), aged 3-21, receive a free and appropriate public education. Peotone offers a full continuum of placements and services for students with identified disabilities and insures that students are educated in the least restrictive environment.

~ Member District of SOWIC Special Education Cooperative: Peotone School District is a member of SOWIC Special Education Cooperative with 10 other school districts. Each SOWIC member district provides a full continuum of special education placements either within their buildings, through the Cooperative or in private facilities.
