Park View School provides support to building staff and the Morton Grove community regarding the education of students with disabilities, who may qualify under either Section 504 or the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). Under either provision, District 70 supports the intent of the federal and state mandate to meet student needs in the Least Restrictive Environment (LRE). Though we strive to to provide accommodations and/or special education services within the context of the general education setting to the greatest extent possible, a continuum of services and programming is available in collaboration with the Niles Township District for Special Education (NTDSE).

Child Find/Eligibility: Students are identified for special education through a child find process as required by federal and state guidelines.
NTDSE offers ongoing preschool screenings for children between the ages of 3 and 5, who are residents of Morton Grove District 70.

For students who are currently attending Park View School, the district uses a Problem Solving process to provide early interventions to supplement research-based core instruction for academic or behavioral concerns. The building Problem Solving Team regularly reviews classroom performance and assists in connecting students to appropriate interventions. The data from this process then provides the foundation for a Response to Intervention (RTI) approach, which may result in a referral for screening and a possible determination of eligibility for special education services.
