Eight DuPage County school districts will stand alone when it comes to special education.
Creation of a new group, the North DuPage Special Education Cooperative, got the nod of approval this week from regional school trustees.
That means the districts may leave the School Association for Special Education in DuPage County, directly receive state and federal funds, and provide all of their own special education programs.
"We have a common interest here. We have an awful lot of common ground here and we want to keep that," Jerome Gordon told the regional board Monday night.
