Los Lunas Schools provide a full range of Special Education programs to students who meet eligibility requirements. Students qualify for Special Education placement only after an appropriate referral and diagnostic evaluation is completed. Referrals are made only after a wide range of alternative strategies have been used to assist a child in the regular classroom. Parents are notified of any referral and must give permission for a diagnostic evaluation. An Individualized Education Plan (IEP) meeting is held with the staff and parents to determine placement in the least restrictive environment for eligible students.
