As a recipient of federal funds, Mid-Valley Special Education Cooperative and its member districts, Batavia, Geneva, St. Charles, Central and Kaneland, conduct an annual needs assessment of general and special education staff, administrators, and parents. The results of the needs assessment may help improve the delivery of services to students who receive special education services and their families, and help provide direction for support and training.

Notes from the Executive Director

It seems like winter break was just a little longer than we expected! I hope your break and your "cold days" were wonderful and warm. My ski trip was very nice, but not something we would repeat. I think we all like to be home for the holidays.
