SKIP students join us from 15 area school districts. We are all part of a a special education cooperative called BHASED.
The Black Hawk Area Special Education District (BHASED) is a special education joint agreement between fifteen local school districts in the Illinois counties of Henry, Mercer and Rock Island. We cover approximately 1600 square miles and serve parents and school staff that work with approximately 38,000 public, private and parochial school students.
We want teachers, parents, students, school administrators and all others that we serve to view all BHASED staff as a valuable resource, as a team of professionals willing to partner with them to facilitate the appropriate education and socialization of all students.
New state and federal regulations that will effect the special education process and language is available to view at www.isbe.net.
