LEA Determination on Special Education and Related Services

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).

LEAs receive a determination in each of the indicator categories and an overall determination in one of four categories: Meets Requirements, Needs Assistance, Needs Intervention, or Needs Substantial Intervention. The attached LEA Determination letter specifies your LEA’s designation and any required follow up activities as a result of the designation.

The 2017-2018 school year criteria for local determinations are defined on the ISBE website at: https://www.isbe.net/Pages/Special-Education-LEA-Determinations.aspx.
