Welcome to River Trails District 26's Student Services Page. The Student Services Department provides support to the district in a variety of ways.  Our school based teams provide leadership in the referral and evaluation process in accordance with both IDEA (Individuals with Disabilities Education Act) for specialized services, and Section 504 (Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973).  This department also supports students through a Multi-Tiered System of Supports (MTSS) model and seeks to put tiered services in place for any student who struggles academically, socially, or behaviorally in the general education environment. We strive to build positive partnerships with district, homeschool and private school families to provide resources to ensure student success. If you have any additional questions, please contact Dr. Jodi Megerle, Asst Superintendent of Special Services at 224-612-7304 or jmegerle@rtsd26.org
