Special Education Student Transition

  • Eighth Grade Transition for Special Education Students

    The transition from middle school to Evanston Township High School for students with disabilities is a collaborative process involving:

    • Students
    • Parents/Guardians
    • Teachers from both the middle school and ETHS
    • Other personnel, if necessary (i.e., speech pathologist, nurse, social worker, interpreter, etc.)
    • ETHS Special Education Administrator

    The Special Education Department hosts an Eighth Grade Transition Night early in the process to provide more information on the transition process.

    Transfer Student Transition

    Students with IEPs transferring to ETHS from other high schools will complete the enrollment process outlined below.

    Grade 9-12 Transfer Student

    Your child is in grade 9, 10, 11 or 12 and you have moved within the District 202 attendance area and your child is transferring to ETHS  from an Illinois public school, private or parochial school, a school outside of Illinois or outside of the U.S.

    Upon completion of the enrollment process, the ETHS Special Education office will review a student’s last IEP, make recommendations to the counselor, and a class schedule will be developed. The Special Education office will schedule a 30-day IEP review meeting, if deemed necessary, to monitor a student’s transition to ETHS, and adjust services as required, if necessary.
