Welcome to the Special Education Department's website.
The Lake Shore Central School District is committed to providing our students with an outstanding education. In order to meet the educational needs of all students, the District provides a variety of programs and services to support the educational process. Many of these programs are provided through regular education and are implemented through each school's Response to Intervention (RtI) team. Click HERE to read more about the RtI process.
Parents and students are introduced to special education in
various ways. Some disabilities can be identified when children are very
young. Click HERE to see the Committee on Preschool Special Education (CPSE). Other students are not identified until
children show difficulty in regular school programs. Special education programs
and services are designed to assure that children with disabilities receive
appropriate and equal opportunities for educational growth up to age 21, if
necessary. Click HERE to see the Committee on Special Education (CSE).
