From the Director of Information Technology, Larry Hanks:
Dear Edwardsburg School Family and Community Members,
I wanted to take a quick moment and reach out to inform everyone that we are currently taking the necessary steps to update our website as a way to increase our compliance with OCR (Office for Civil Rights) website standards. During this time, we have audited our current website and we have begun adjusting our images, pages, and documents to ensure that we are in full compliance of OCR's requirements. Thank you for your patience during this website transition and please check back regularly for updates on our progress.
Lewis Cass Intermediate School District operates a specialized school, Brookside Learning Center, to educate those birth to 25 year old students whose handicapping condition is labeled as severe Cognitive impairment, severely multiply impaired, trainable mentally impaired, autistically impaired or for those six year old and under students whose disability condition qualifies them for a preprimary classroom. L.C.I.S.D. also operates several specialized classrooms for the purpose of educating some students whose disability is labeled as mentally or emotionally impaired.
Students participate in the L.C.I.S.D. specialized school from the Edwardsburg Public School District. Other students attend specialized contracted programs in some neighboring districts.
Special education eligible students are enrolled in the L.C.I.S.D. specialized school through the Individualized Educational Planning Committee (IEPC) process.
The goals of the school are defined in the L.C.I.S.D. mission statement and are met when individual students reach toward their maximum potential by accomplishing the goals and objectives on their individualized education plan and are challenged to become as independent as possible.
