District 287 special education programs operate on a fee-for-service basis. Revenue to fund District 287 student services is generated by tuition billing.

The regional approach makes the costs for specialized services lower. The cost for individual districts to serve students with complex needs can be extraordinarily high, especially in staffing. District 287 manages a $93 million budget.

The consortium is able to leverage economies of scale, resulting in lower costs to member districts, coupled with the ability to access a great variety of specialized services. Costs go down as program usage goes up.

We pride ourselves on responsible fiscal stewardship to best serve our member districts.
