Special School Programs

Louisiana Special School District includes 17 statewide Special Program sites that support students with developmental delays as well as mental and behavioral disabilities through four main programs – Citizens with Developmental Disabilities, Behavioral Health Facilities, Juvenile Justice Facilities, and Correctional Facilities. The goals and objectives on each student's IEP are directed not only toward meeting the academic, social and behavioral needs of the student, but also the demands of adult functional living.  These functional living skills, where appropriate, shall include self- help, leisure time activities, community participation, and vocational training for gainful employment. Services are available to students pursuing a regular diploma, a General Education Diploma (G.E.D.) through HiSET or a Certificate of Achievement.

Services provided include:

Gifted and Talented
General and Special Education
Pupil Appraisal
Career and Technical Education Assistance
Transition Services

All students who are eligible for participation in the Louisiana Educational Assessment Program, Grades 3- 8, EOC, LEAP Connect, and/or ELPT, statewide assessments will participate in the assessment that is designated for the appropriate grade level and/or special need, as applicable.
