Daily Herald report

Because of the weather, the Lake County regional board of education has postponed a discussion scheduled for tonight about whether Stevenson High School should be allowed to leave the Special Education District of Lake County and provide its own educational services for all students with disabilities.

The meeting has been rescheduled to 7 p.m. Jan. 13 at the University Center, 1200 University Center Drive, in Grayslake.

If the request is granted, more of Stevenson's special-education students will attend classes at the Lincolnshire school rather than at SEDOL's specialized, off-site locations. About 20 of Stevenson's nearly 3,800 students receive services from SEDOL. That total is expected to drop to zero after the 2014-15 term.

Stevenson officials want to detach from SEDOL in summer 2014. So do two elementary districts that feed into Stevenson -- Kildeer Countryside District 96 and Lincolnshire-Prairie View District 103.
