Mr. Thomas Porter

District 205 continues to provide a continuum of services along with a spectrum of support services that address the various needs of our students.  I head up the team of highly trained Counselors, Nurses, Social Workers, Psychologists, Speech Pathologists, Certified Teachers, and Paraprofessionals that provide support to students with Individualized Education Plans. 

In addition to working with Special Education, I will also be coordinating the District’s Response to Intervention (RtI) initiative by facilitating the Pyramid of Intervention and monitoring and supporting the delivery within the schools.
