Mundelein ESD 75 offers preschool programming to students identified as at-risk during the screening process or students who qualify for special education programming. 

  

 

JumpStart is a general education classroom for students who qualify based on the District's screening process. JumpStart classes are taught by general education teachers and have twenty students per section. Each classroom is staffed with a teacher and a paraprofessional.

Early Childhood Special Education is a special education classroom for students eligible for Special Education services and needs a smaller, more supported classroom setting. Each classroom can have a maximum of ten students and is staffed with a special education teacher and paraprofessional. This placement choice is a team decision made during the child's IEP meeting. 

 

EXLS is a special education classroom for students identified as needing special education services and support from a longer, more structured school day with focused instruction on executive functioning, language, and social skills.  Each classroom can have a maximum of ten students and is staffed with a special education teacher and paraprofessional. This placement choice is a team decision made during the child's IEP meeting. 

 

Itinerant Services is a special education service for students who qualify for Speech and Language or Occupational Therapy services but do not require a preschool classroom. This placement choice is a team decision made during the child's IEP meeting.

 

The term "homeless children and youth" means individuals who lack a fixed, regular, and adequate nighttime residence and includes: 

  • Children and youth who are sharing the housing of other persons due to loss of housing, economic hardship, or a similar reason; are living in motels, hotels, trailer parks, or camping grounds due to the lack of alternative accommodations; are living in emergency or transitional shelters; are abandoned in hospitals, or are awaiting foster care placement.
  • Children and youth who have a primary nighttime residence that is a public or private place not designed for or ordinarily used as regular sleeping accommodation for human beings.
  • Children and youth who are living in cars, parks, public spaces, abandoned buildings, substandard housing, bus or train stations, or similar settings; and
  • Migratory children who qualify as homeless for the purposes of this subtitle because the children are living in circumstances described above.
