In May 2018, after a five-month investigation, the Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE) found that CPS has systemically violated special education laws over the last two years. ISBE appointed a monitor to oversee reforms that should have started this school year. However, advocates continue to hear that problems with special education service persist.
Please provide the Advocate Group with up-to-date information about your experiences this school year. Only include information about issues you are CURRENTLY witnessing or experiencing. We hope to present this information to the ISBE/monitor and demand both ISBE’s and CPS’ commitment to appropriate services for students with disabilities. This survey contains 17 questions. It will close on October 2, 2018.
