|Special Education Services (Grades K - 12)|
Students with disabilities and exceptionalities moving to the Lansing District with an individualized educational plan (IEP) from another school district in Kansas, another state or country:
- Lansing School District offers similar special education programming and related services at each school. The majority of Lansing students with IEPs attend their home schools. Students with more significant needs may attend a host program that is located in a separate location within the Leavenworth County Special Education Cooperative.
- Programs are offered for students with a learning disability, autism, emotional and behavioral disorders, deafness, blindness, other health impairments, speech and language disorders, intellectual delays, orthopedic conditions, as well as gifted students.
- As soon as a home is purchased or leased within the Lansing School District, it is important to make contact with the appropriate school counselor or school psychologist. Your timely contact will assist the school’s educational team in working with you and your student to determine the most appropriate placement. Be sure to bring a copy of your student’s most recent IEP and evaluation documents.
- The school’s educational team will review the IEP and evaluation from your student’s previous school district, and they will work with you to implement programming that meets the special education needs of your student.
- All decisions regarding services and programming are made at the school level by the IEP team, which includes the parents and/or guardian of the student.
