Lago Vista ISD
Special Education/504
 


The Department of Special Education/504 offers a variety of interventions and supports for LVISD students and their families. Lago Vista ISD Special Education/504 staff identify and provide an appropriate education for all individuals who qualify for the District’s services under either of these programs. 

Local education agencies/school districts (LEA's) must ensure that a free appropriate public education is provided to all individuals with disabilities ages 3-21 who qualify for Special Education services. These services include individual instructional plans and related services provided by the LEA/school district for students who have one or more of the following disabilities according to federal criteria and who also have a demonstrated educational need for special education services:

  • Speech or language impairment 
  • Hearing impairment including deafness 
  • Visual impairment including blindness 
  • Deaf-Blindness 
  • Orthopedic impairment
  • Specific Learning Disability 
  • Intellectual Disability 
  • Emotional Disturbance 
  • Autism 
  • Other Health Impairment 
  • Multiple Disabilities 
  • Traumatic Brain Injury

The District also has specific responsibilities under Section 504 which include the responsibility to identify, evaluate and, if the student is determined to be eligible under Section 504, to afford access to necessary educational accommodations.

Child Find
Special Education services are available to eligible children within Lago Vista Independent School District. The student must be between the ages of 3-21 with a documented handicap and an educational need that requires Special Education.  Children with visual and/or auditory impairments may be eligible at birth. A variety of placement options are available if a student is found to be eligible for services after a full and individual evaluation.  

For children ages 3-5 years or placed in a private or home school, please contact the Child Find Coordinator, Heather Kercheville, at 512-267-8300 x3500. For school-aged students attending a Lago Vista ISD, please contact the campus principal.
