NOTICE TO PARENTS/GUARDIANS OF CHILDREN WITH DISABILITIES

Under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act, the District must provide students with disabilities with appropriate special education and related services to address their educational needs. If your student receives related services from the District through their Individualized Education Program (“IEP”) document, such as occupational therapy, physical therapy, social work, nursing services, and speech and language therapy, you may request copies of related service logs developed and maintained by the District for your child. These related service logs include information regarding the type and duration of related services administered to your child.

If you have any questions regarding your child’s special education services, please contact Amy Gambrel agambrel@pcsedu.org 312-604-2200.
