LUDA (The Large Unit District Association) was created in 1976 by a group of superintendents who recognized the need for an organization that would provide networking, professional development, and advocacy for large unit school districts.

Our purpose is to:

1. Promote the sound and efficient operation of large unit school districts in the State of Illinois

 2. Serve as a resource of information for large unit school districts

 3. Make known to the public the educational, financial, operational, and organizational needs and concerns of large unit districts in order to promote the common good and general welfare of the districts, their students, and their communities.

4. Influence legislation and regulations; disseminate analyses, studies, and research in order to assist in the development of sound educational policy. 

About: Catapult Learning

Achieving Beyond Expectations: Serving K-12 children who struggle with academics.

We believe the key to unlocking a child’s potential lies within a motivating learning environment that is sensitive to his or her unique instructional needs. That’s why we partner with schools and school districts to better understand the challenges children face, and offer customized solutions that range from small-group K-12 instructional intervention services, to extended-day and summer learning programs, to turnkey professional development and more.

For 35 years, Catapult Learning and our predecessor companies have partnered with education institutions, government agencies, and community groups, providing outcomes-based learning programs that are tailored to individual student needs and produce positive academic results.  Catapult Learning, a privately owned company, is a leading provider of contracted educational services to schools and districts nationwide and last year we provided more than 106,000 services to students in approximately 1,400 schools. We are currently the largest, most experienced provider of contracted educational services to non-public schools in the country.  Our instruction, our services, and our people motivate the students we serve to achieve great success in school and beyond.

Our programs employ over 3,200 full- and part-time staff, and have served more than one million students. Our streamlined administrative structure is designed to ensure that we meet planned, agreed upon goals in a highly cost-efficient manner.  Our managerial expertise enables us to seamlessly integrate our programs into schools, thus alleviating—and even eliminating—complex administrative responsibilities from the districts and schools we serve.

In addition to our signature K-12 instructional intervention services and programs focusing on reading and math, we provide a wide variety of additional services such as English as a second language (ESL) programs, speech/language assessment and intervention services, writing, study skills and test taking strategies, diagnostic therapy and counseling services, IDEA services, early childhood education, parent involvement programs, school nursing and social work, program evaluation, and a variety of consultative services.  We also provide Professional Development services using a diverse array of offerings.  We deliver these services under contract to school districts, county‑wide educational agencies, and municipalities.  We have earned a reputation for providing effective and cost-efficient educational services to schools.
