Special Education

The Lake County Educational Service Center (LCESC) offers a variety of program options for students who reside in Lake County. Districts with students who require very specialized programming to meet their individual needs may find it difficult to provide the variety of services necessary to meet a variety of needs. Districts may need to provide those services in a collaborative and consortium model. The LCESC is able to provide effective programming in a cost effective manner, as well as, support the individual districts in providing programs within their own schools. All programming is designed with the Least Restrictive Environment in mind. Students are provided support and services at their individual level of need to allow them to remain as close to the regular education setting as possible. The LCESC is committed to assisting districts to provide Free and Appropriate Public Education to the students in their districts. The LCESC approaches planning by using the Lake County Leadership Cycle. The appropriate stakeholders are convened to identify needs and goals. The team collaborates to maximize resources for the identified common goal. The team remains together to create a new product, service options or programs. The process has proven to result in success!
