Student Support Services

The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) is a federal law that governs special education. IDEA makes available a free appropriate public education (FAPE) in the least restrictive environment (LRE) to every child with a disability. IDEA ensures special education and related services for those children. Children and youth ages 3 through 21 receive special education and related services under IDEA Part B.  

Lakes International Language Academy (LILA)  provides an inclusive model for special education services through specially designed services and instruction to provide students who have a disability that affects their learning. Qualification for Special Education services is determined after a comprehensive special education evaluation process is completed. If you suspect your child may have a disability, please contact the Special Education Assessment Coordinator.

The Minnesota Department of Education is responsible for the rules and regulations affecting special education in the state. You can visit the Minnesota Department of Education’s special education website for more information.
