Services

LASARD has taken what we have learned since 2006 and created an array of services. LASARD is included in the LDOE Professional Learning Partner Guide, as one of the vetted vendors school systems can choose to provide professional support for educating diverse learners. If a school is designated UIR for students with disabilities, LDOE funding for our services may be requested via the Super App. Our services will be supported by our Louisiana-based staff..

As you are considering services, you may choose one of the packages from the LDOE Professional Learning Partner Guide, or we can develop a customized package to best meet the needs of your district.

Our training levels include Basics, Deeper Dives, and Series.  If you don’t see a topic that you need, we can also develop a customized training for you.
