CPS Policies and Procedures

In September 2018, the Office of Diverse Learner Supports and Services issued updated CPS procedures and guidelines for students referred for or currently receiving specialized services.

If you are the parent of a child with disabilities for whom transportation is provided pursuant to an Individualized Education Program (IEP) or 504 Plan and your child is experiencing transportation related problems, call (773) 553-2860 for immediate assistance.

For questions around special education services, please contact the ODLSS District Representative assigned to support the specific school.
