CUSD 200 Student Services Department
The Student Services Department in District 200 provides a range of services to meet the needs of students between the ages of 3 and 22.
District 200 provides free developmental screenings for children birth-to-5-years of age who reside within the school district attendance area. The purpose of the screening is to determine if your child is meeting his/her developmental milestones. Areas screened includes speech/language, readiness, social/emotional, and motor skill development. If difficulties are detected, a child may be referred for an evaluation through the district. Call 630-682-2109 or complete the Ages and Stages Questionnaire (ASQ) interactive online questionnaire with your child at https://asqonline.com/family/759507.
This federal law prohibits discrimination on the basis of disability by any program or activity that receives or benefits from federal funding. Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 requires that disabled students be provided with a free appropriate public education including education with non-disabled peers to the maximum extent appropriate.
Referrals for consideration for Section 504 eligibility may be made at any time. A referral may be made by individuals with knowledge of the student’s needs and/or educational programming, including parents, teachers, and other staff members. Please contact the student’s home school for referral inquiries. The Section 504 Building Coordinator will contact you to fill out a District 200 Section 504 Plan Referral Form.
A school evaluation team (if an evaluation is deemed necessary), consisting of persons knowledgeable about the student, will conduct an individual evaluation of the student. Parental consent will be obtained prior to the initial evaluation completed by the District. The team will review all submitted documentation, current teacher reports, past records and tests. Additional evaluation measures will be conducted by the School District if deemed necessary. An eligibility determination meeting will follow. If the student is eligible, a Section 504 plan will be developed and implemented. Section 504 plans will be reviewed annually and reevaluations will occur periodically.
School-aged children can be referred for an evaluation by their parents, their teacher, or any other concerned adult. The student's health, vision, hearing, social-emotional status, general intelligence, academic performance, communication status and motor abilities are all components of an evaluation that are considered at the Domain Review. Students are found eligible for special education services following the evaluation if they exhibit deficits that impede their learning. Areas of eligibility include learning disabilities, emotional disorders, mental impairment, speech and language disorders, hearing impairment, vision impairment, traumatic brain injury, physical/health impairment, autism, developmental delay (through age 9 only). All children who reside in District 200 (including private school students) are entitled to evaluation and special education services if found eligible.
