Lincoln is proud to have received recognition from the state in regards to our special education and related services:
The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) requires all states to make annual determinations on the performance of each Local Education Agency (LEA) with regard to the provision of special education and related services. These determinations are based on indicators identified by the federal government and delineated in the State Performance Plan (SPP).
