Screening special needs students

Print More
Two selective enrollment high schools—Whitney Young and
Payton College Prep—accepted 5 percent or less of disabled students
who requested special accommodations on the entrance exam, such as extra
time taking the test. More special education students applied to these schools
but CPS did not track their applications or acceptance rates.
