Lessons Learned from Indicator 13 Audit

Hello my fine friends!
 As you may or may not know, last spring, Minooka High School went through an Indicator 13 audit. The good news is, we survived the audit with just a few corrections! The bad news is, we have a few corrections!
Please take a look at the handout on the right hand side, "Lessons Learned", to keep these corrective actions in mind when writing your Transition Plans. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at 815-999-7210. I hope you are having a swell start to the school year!

Take Care,

JJC Disability Services

Hello Fine Transition Fans!
 Welcome back to the 2017-2018 School Year. Please bookmark this page as your go-to news for anything transition related. I will be going through the blog in the coming week to make sure that each link is as updated as can be. 

 As for new information for this current school year, not a whole lot has changed. Locally, our Joliet Junior College StAR program has changed it's name to Disability Services. They are hoping the name change will allow students and others to know what the function of their department is. Mindy Diaz is still the contact and you can find the updated flyer under helpful links. 

 As always, if you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at or at 815-999-7210.

Welcome Back!

Hello Friends of Transition Planning!
 I just wanted to welcome you back for the 2016-2017 school year! I wanted to let you know of a change in transition support this year. For the past four years, there have been two transition coordinators for Grundy County. One to help with students in our LD programming, and one to work with our lower incidence programming. This year, I will be supporting all areas of special education programming in Grundy County. I look forward to seeing some of you that I haven't seen in a few years and working with you to meet the needs of the students in your districts! Please do not hesitate to contact me at 815-942-5780 or by email at  if you have any questions!

Take Care!
