Special Services Overview

  • Lockport Township High School offers a full range of special services to meet the needs of students with disabilities. Services may range from minimal contact by a specialist on a consultation basis to a full instructional program for those students who need maximum support to achieve their IEP goals. Students are provided with programs and services in the least restrictive environment, as mandated by the Individuals with Disabilities Services Act of 2004.
    Whenever possible, students will participate in classes with their non-disabled peers. The Special Services curriculum is aligned with the general services curriculum and with the Illinois State Learning Standards. A full range of support services and activities to address identified transitional needs is incorporated into each student’s individual education program. Students are placed in classes through the Individualized Educational Plan (I.E.P.) process.
