The Lemont High School Special Education Services Department believes students should:
Receive appropriate help
Develop skills necessary to fulfill goals and objectives identified in their Individual Education Program (IEP)
Work toward becoming a productive member of the community
Courses offered within the Special Education curriculum give each student enrolled the opportunity to work at his or her ability level on those skills that are needed to ensure a successful transition to his or her individual post-high school goal.
Lemont High School provides, either directly or in conjunction with other agencies, several special education programs and services for students. Academic programs and services are available for a variety of purposes, which include:
Moderate or severe mental impairment
Vision and hearing impairments
Services may be provided through in-school programs and services, home and hospital instruction, private school placements or special education cooperative classroom placement. All programs and services are offered in accordance with the document “Rules and Regulations to Govern the Administration and Operation of Special Education.” Parents/guardians may obtain a copy of this document from the Director of Special Education Services.
Grades reflecting student performance are determined by criteria established at an annual review meeting. Each student’s progress and goals are evaluated by the multi-disciplinary team in accordance with the student’s IEP.
Students with disabilities may receive related services as part of their Individual Education Programs (IEPs). School districts maintain related service logs that record the type and number of minutes of the related service(s) administered to such students. Copies of any related service logs are available for parents/guardians at their child’s annual review IEP meeting. Parents/guardians of students with disabilities also may request copies of their child’s related service logs at any time. Please contact Director of Special Education Services Dr. Christi Floreswith any questions.
