parentinfonight_logo2-20213_186x186This Thursday, Ms. Gorman will be hold a Parent Information Night about the possibility of a LADSE classroom being housed at Blythe Park for the upcoming school.  To learn more about the proposed LADSE program and how it will operate at Blythe Park, please make sure to attend the meeting being held in the library at 6:30pm on Thursday, May 5th.  A summary of the proposal is detailed below.

Proposed ProgramThe La Grange Area Department of Special Education (LADSE) has approached the District 96 Board of Education about the possibility of housing a classroom in District 96. Given our district has students enrolled in various LADSE programs, they often solicit partner districts to provide spaces for their classes. The idea was introduced in a presentation to the Board of Education at the April meeting. At the May Board of Education meeting, members of our board will vote on a proposal to house a  classroom for the  2016-2017 school year. Given the current facility space available, Blythe Park is the school proposed to accommodate this program.  The proposed classroom will support  kindergarten through 3rd grade students with autism/communication disabilities, several of whom are District 96 students.  Since LADSE will be renting the space from District 96, the classroom will have its own staff and administration and function similar to a “school within a school”.
