Special Education Services
McHenry Community High School District 156 provides a full continuum of services for students who have been identified with having a disability under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). These services range from support in the general education environment to specialized instructional courses, and/or related services. The goal of special education and related services is to support each child and address their individual needs in the Least Restrictive Environment (LRE). An Individualized Education Program (IEP) is developed in collaboration with students, parents, teachers, and related service staff on a yearly basis minimally. We are committed to providing a supportive environment in which our students with special needs can develop academic, social, emotional, vocational, and life skills.
