The mission of South Lake Schools Special Services Department is to prepare each child in our schools to reach his/her potential. This goal is met through classes and support services, offering the necessary academic and emotional assistance enabling each child to be an independent, productive citizen.
Child Find is an array of comprehensive activities available through South Lake
Schools and/or Macomb Intermediate School District, that indentifies resident
children, ages birth to twenty-six years who may be in need of special education
services. Child Find offers evaluations to determine whether a child has an
impairment. Following the evaluation, eligible children are referred to appropriate programs and services. If you feel your child needs special education services or if you have any questions, please call Ms. Toni Kasander 586-435-1610
In addition to South Lake’s K-12 programs, the following services are also available when deemed appropriate through an Individual Education Plan (IEP):
The District shall not discriminate against any student having a disability, a record of having had a disability, or who is otherwise regarded as having a disability. The District shall also, as required by law, attempt to locate and identify each student within the District’s jurisdiction who may be an eligible student under Section 504. The District shall evaluate each student identified under Section 504 and provide each eligible student with a FAPE as defined by law.
The District also shall not discriminate against persons based upon any other legally protected characteristic. Other District publications and policy documents should be consulted to obtain details of those prohibitions, and the means by which an internal complaint or grievance concerning any type of discrimination may be filed.
