  • ELCO School District provides special education services to identified students in accordance with PA Chapter 14.  Supports and services are identified through a comprehensive educational evaluation completed by a certified school psychologist along with the development of an Individualized Education Program (IEP).  The ELCO School District is committed to supporting students with special education needs through a variety of programs and services across the K-12 continuum.  Through partnerships with the Lancaster-Lebanon Intermediate Unit #13, neighboring school districts, and private educational providers, along with a growing expanse of District-operated programming, a comprehensive and individualized program can be delivered and tailored to meet the unique needs of students.
