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 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.

If you feel that your student needs a 504 plan, contact Monya Clifton or your school’s assistant principal.


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 local mental health agencies that 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.
