Timely and Meaningful Consultation
Homewood School District 153 provides a yearly Timely and Meaningful Consultation (TMC) for our families that have homeschooled students or students that attend private school within our school boundaries. Our Consultation discusses the district’s plans for providing special education services to students with disabilities who attend private schools and/or home schools within the district for the 2020-2021 school year. If you are the parent of a home-schooled student who has been, or may be, identified with a disability and you reside within the boundaries of Homewood School District 153, you are urged to call to discuss.
If you have further questions please contact Melanie Mandisodza, Director of Student Support Services at 708-798-3766.
