Exceptional Children Program
Our Exceptional Children's program is dedicated to ensuring that all students with disabilities will have access to full continuum of educational opportunities and services based on individual needs. Lakeside Charter Academy provides special education services and related services according to the federal mandates of the Individual with Disabilities Act. LCA also provides support and training to the regular education teachers as needed to implement interventions, accommodations and modifications in the regular education classroom setting.
North Carolina has a continuing Child Find procedure in place to locate all children with disabilities residing in the State, including children with disabilities attending private schools, regardless of the severity of their disability, and who are in need of special education and related services. This effort also includes highly mobile children with disabilities (such as migrant and homeless children) and children who are suspected of being a child with a disability and in need of special education, even though they are advancing from grade to grade. The purpose of this procedure is to enhance public understanding of exceptional children and youth and with special needs, to identify and locate the children and youth, and to inform the public of available services. The collection and use of data to meet the requirements of Child Find are subject to the confidentiality requirements.
At Lakeside Charter Academy, a poster and brochures are available to the public regarding NCDPI's efforts to provide information to parents, grandparents, and guardians about the Child Find Process.
