Special Education Support Services
Special Education is an integral part of the educational enterprise at Lifeline Education Charter School (LECS), not a separate order. In any school system, special education is a means of enlarging the capacity of the system to serve the educational needs of all children.
- Assisting parents with Individualized Education Program (IEP) and/or 504 plan support;

In California, every local education agency (LEA) is required to belong to a Special Education Local Plan Area (SELPA). The SELPA is a consortia of LEAs responsible for the development of special education policies and procedures, distribution of federal and state special education funds, and providing a range of professional development pertaining to special education. As of the 2007-08 school year, Lifeline Education Charter School is a proud member of the El Dorado County SELPA.
