Special Education

The Special Education Department at Troy 30-C exists to support students to reach their academic, functional, and social emotional potential by implementing research-based best practices and strategies in order to promote independence and self-advocacy, in collaboration with families and their communities, to ensure student growth.

The Troy 30-C Special Education Department, in collaboration with the Southern Will County Special Education Cooperative (SOWIC), provides a full continuum of services and placement options to meet the needs of children between the ages of 3 and 8th grade who meet federal and state eligibility criteria for special education due to a disability that adversely impacts their educational performance.

Once a student is deemed eligible for special education, an Individualized Education Plan (IEP) is developed.  An IEP is a written statement outlining the educational program tailored to meet the student’s needs.  This plan may include related services to help the student benefit from special education, such as, social work, speech/language therapy, transportation, assistive technology, occupational and physical therapy, and adaptive physical education. It is important to note that related services are based on educational needs and differ from those provided within a medical model.

More information about special education and related services can be found on the Illinois State Board of Education’s website.
