LASARD has taken what we have learned from our 13 year track record of success in Louisiana schools and created an array of services. Our services can be customized to meet your individual needs and will be supported by our Louisiana-based staff. LASARD is included in the Louisiana Department of Education’s Partnership for Success guide, as one of the vetted vendors school systems can choose to provide professional support for educating students with disabilities. If a school is designated UIR for students with disabilities, LDOE funding for our services may be requested via the Super App. For more information about partnership services, including customized packages and add-ons, contact us.
