How did we come to be? What have we come to be?
What is our Mission
Lakeland School is an important resource and
integral part of the County’s Special Education system for the
independent School Districts within Walworth County.
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 school districts.
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 care.
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.
