About LPS Student Services:
Livonia Public Schools has been a leader in the field of support
services and special education programs. Long before the passage of
federal and state laws requiring general education accommodations
and/or appropriate special education programs for all eligible
students, Livonia had programs for students experiencing significant
social/emotional and/or learning problems. Prevention, intervention,
and support programs are services available for students at all levels.
services provide and facilitate activities for families to enhance the
home/school relationship, as well as coordinating district wide
specialized programs and activities.
services provide support in the areas of academic skill development,
social skills development, vocational and post high school planning,
substance abuse prevention and intervention education, and assistance
to students with limited English proficiency. Services are provided to
students with social/emotional needs and support is given to classroom
teachers in providing appropriate classroom accommodations.
Education programs and services (which are provided to eligible
students birth to 26) include evaluation, support to students with
disabilities in general education, and a full continuum of special
education programs and services based on the LRE (least restrictive
environment) appropriate for each student. Multi-district special
education center programs provide services to students from Livonia and
surrounding Western Wayne County school districts who are eligible for
“low incidence” special education programs.
Student Services Department focuses on offering support to students,
parents, and staff in order to help children succeed in their
educational program by better understanding unique learning needs and
addressing those needs in the classroom.
