What is the SEDOL Foundation?

The Special Education District of Lake County – “SEDOL” – is responsible for providing physically, mentally, and emotionally challenged children up to age 22 with educational opportunities appropriate to each child’s needs. Created in 1960, SEDOL is a cooperative system that serves over 2,200 students, 400 square miles and 31 Lake County school districts.

While the Special Education District’s services are comprehensive, there are important life-enhancing resources that the organization simply can’t provide because of funding limitations. That’s where the SEDOL Foundation comes in. Believing that every child deserves the opportunity to develop to their full potential, the not-for-profit Foundation was created in 1991 to partner with SEDOL, special needs children and their families to overcome difficult challenges and create hope and new possibilities.
