Iroquois Special Education Association

Nicole Bales, Executive Director

Iroquois Special Education Association (ISEA) consists of six member districts in Iroquois County.  The Association is located between Kankakee and Champaign, 30 miles south of Kankakee and 50 miles north of Champaign.  Chicago is 75 miles north of the central office in Gilman.

The Association provides programs for mild through severe/profound.  The majority of the programs are cross-categorical.  In both resource and instructional programs, students identified as LD, ED, OHI, S/L, AUT, DD, and ID are being served.  We also serve Visually Impaired and Hearing Impaired students.  

The Association also operates an alternative education program in a separate location (Bryce Ash-Grove Educational Center).

Students with disabilities may receive related services as part of their individual education programs (IEPs).  Iroquois Special Education Association will maintain related service logs that record the type and number of minutes of the related service(s) administered to such students.  Copies of any related service logs will be available to parents/guardians at their child's annual review IEP meeting.  Parents/guardians of students with disabilities may also request copies of their child's related service logs at any time.  Any parent who is deaf or does not typically communicate using spoken English and who participates in a Section 504 meeting, IEP meeting, due process hearing, mediation or multidisciplinary conference with a school representative is entitled to the services of an interpreter.
