The Student Services Department in District 28 strives to implement a strong network of services in order to allow each student to reach their greatest potential. District 28 is committed to educational excellence and continuous achievement for all learners. We recognize the importance of providing a quality educational experience to all children, including those with high ability, special needs, or learning English as a new language.

Please feel free to contact any of us for any questions, concerns, or comments that you may have about your child or the programs that we have to offer. We hope that this school year is an excellent experience for you and your child! I look forward to partnering in order to help all children learn.
