Diane Snyder – Special Education Secretary
At Morton CUSD 709, our goals for the Special Education Department are the same as for the entire District. Specifically, it is the mission of the Special Education Department to:
~ Ensure all students achieve their highest potential
~ Meet individual student needs based on assessments for learning and provide research-based instruction and interventions
~ Identify the specific needs of each student in order to determine teaching and learning priorities and the effectiveness of instructional methods
Additionally, we recognize the role of inclusion in helping all students develop, and we place students in general education classrooms as appropriate for each individual student.
The special education department of Morton CUSD 709 takes great pride in providing support to approximately 400 students (ages 3 – 22) with varying needs. Each school is equipped with numerous special education teachers and a speech therapist. Our district also provides occupational therapy, physical therapy, social workers, school psychologists, as well as other services. Morton CUSD 709 cares deeply about each of our students and wants to inspire them to be their best.
