Parents of these students, or the child himself (if he has reached the age of 18), have the right to request this information.

At LHSD, our special education team serves our students with special needs through a full continuum of services. To receive special education services, students must meet eligibility guidelines set forth in the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act. For more information about the IDEA, click here. For a copy of Your Rights Under the IDEA, click here.
Students with disabilities, whether permanent or temporary, are eligible to receive accommodations that allow them to access the learning environment successfully. Any disability that substantially limits a major life activity should be reported to school personnel so that a 504 plan can be considered. For more information about Section 504 plans, click here.
If you feel that your student needs a 504 plan, contact Monya Clifton or your school’s assistant principal.
SCHOOL-BASED MENTAL HEALTH
We take student mental health very seriously. To support our school guidance counselors, we employ a licensed mental health provider and a student support assistant, and we have a strong working relationship with four mental health agencies who provide mental health services on our campus. If you feel that your student needs mental health services, please contact his or her school guidance counselor to request a referral.
