The Rock Island-Milan School District has scheduled a meeting Thursday for home-school families to provide information about resources available through the district if their students have special needs.

The meeting is held annually and is required by the state, said Meg Hott, who helps handle such services for the district. The district tells families who are home schooling children how to access services like speech therapy or academic services, should their children need them.

The meeting will be at 1 p.m. Thursday at the district's Administration Center, 2101 6th Ave., Rock Island.

For more information, contact the district at (309) 793-5900, ext. 224.
