Joliet District 204's new property to serve students with disabilities

Joliet Township High School District 204 announced it will use newly purchased property as a facility to serve students with disabilities.

District 204 approved the purchase of the property at 128 Collins St. in Joliet and closed on the sale last month, according to a post on the district's Facebook page.

The 7,540 square-foot building will serve as the JTHS Transition Center, a program that serves students with disabilities from age 18 until the day before their 22nd birthday. The building cost $700,000 to purchase, according to the post.

"The additional space provides an environment where students can receive intense transitional supports that develop vocational, community and independent living skills," JTHS Assistant Superintendent for Business Services Illandus Hampton said in the post.
