What is our Mission
School is an important resource and integral part of the County’s
Special Education system for the independent School Districts within
Lakeland is the operational and administrational heart of a model cost-efficient Special
Education Program the County administrators for its rural,
smaller sized school districts in harmony and cooperation with those individual
Each School District’s Special
Ed Program is supervised by Walworth County Administrators whose offices are
located at Lakeland. The individual School Districts utilize Lakeland’s
program based on the IEP team recommendations. Students can benefit from
the expert staff, low student to teacher ratio, and remain at Lakeland as long
as is appropriate. Some students will remain at Lakeland through
graduation from high school. Other students are able to return to less
restrictive settings within the districts if their needs change, at the
recommendation of the IEP team.
The greatest advantage of this self-contained facility is that it offers
students who have significant learning difficulties, and who would likely be
self-contained within a district school, the opportunity to develop friendships
and experience activities among a sizeable peer group. For those who are
less independent, it offers safety, structure and personalized attention and
Social Development is not
ignored. Lakeland School offers a variety of classroom and
extra-curricular activities such as the Peer Model Program, Special Olympics, Unicef Carnival, School Fest, dances, Saturday soccer and
t-ball leagues, field trips and other community experiences, high school prom,
concerts and other fun events too numerous to mention.
