Jasper County Schools

Provision of a Free Appropriate Public Education

Jasper County Community Unit 1 Schools provide and maintain appropriate and effective educational programs in order to allow every eligible child with a disability between the ages of 3 and 21 years of age to be enrolled in our district.  Our district allows for special education and related services to address the adverse effect of the disability on his/her education.  Jasper County schools set a very high goal to provide comprehensive programs of special education that meet and exceed state and federal special education laws for our students.
