Special Education Supports
It is the policy of Jefferson Parish Public School System, JPPSS, to serve students' needs in their Least Restrictive Environment (LRE) as expected by best practices and mandated by federal law. Four year old special education students may be enrolled in Pre-K 4 in one of two types of classes: 1) Pre-K 4 special education categorical setting or 2) Pre-K 4 general education setting with an overlay of special education services delivered within this setting. Placement in either setting is an IEP team decision. Even if you receive notice that your child may attend a specific school or is placed through the lottery at a specific school, placement could change dependent upon the IEP team decision.
Seats in JPPSS Pre-K classrooms awarded via the lottery are pending final funding from the Louisiana Legislature and budgetary approval from the Louisiana Board of Elementary and Secondary Education (BESE).
