In Illinois, there are specific requirements that school districts must meet when it comes to special education. One of these requirements is the submission of Form Isbe 85 51. This form is used to report the number of students who receive special education services, as well as the type and intensity of services each student receives. It's important for school districts to submit this form on a regular basis, so that the state can ensure that all students with disabilities are receiving the appropriate services.

Form Preview Example



This ATTESTATION form may be used if you are an adult who has assumed responsibility for a pupil and provide the pupil with a fixed, nighttime abode, for reasons other than access to the educational programs of the school district.

This form should not be used, however, if you are the natural or adoptive parent of the pupil, have been granted court-ordered custody or guardianship, or are receiving public aid on behalf of the pupil. For these situations, you are only required to provide documentation (such as a birth certificate or court order), without the need of an ATTESTATION like this one.

This form is also not required for pupils who are sharing the housing of others due to lack of housing, economic hardship, or similar reason, or are otherwise homeless as defined in state and federal law. Homeless pupils must be enrolled immediately.

If you have any questions about residency, including homelessness, please contact the Illinois State Board of Education’s Accountability Division at (217) 782-2948.
