About Us

The Citywide Education Council for District 75 is comprised of parents with children attending District 75 schools and programs. We are officially elected advocates who are passionately committed to serving the students and parents of our district by addressing their issues and needs.

We promote transparency as well as evoke and engage conversation and action on education, instruction, inclusion, transition, transportation, employment and related therapy and services. We foster individual’s independence, opportunities and emphasize dignity and respect for all children. 

The Citywide Education Council for District 75 receive information on matters affecting the provision of special education services to students. The council, in turn must consult with a wider community of parents and comment on citywide special education policy. Our meetings will be open to the public, attended by the Superintendent and will allow the members of the community to be heard on educational issues.

 The Citywide District 75 Council also issue an annual report on the effectiveness of special education services and make recommendations on how to improve them. To be effective, the council will work to establish a productive working relationship with the superintendent of District 75.
