My name is Missy Koning, and I am an Assistant Principal and the Special Education Administrator at Lincoln Community High School.

One of my roles as an Assistant Principal is to facilitate the provision of support for students who may qualify for assistance through a 504 plan as defined by Section 504 of the Individuals with Disabilities Act.

The Special Education Department at LCHS provides services to students through Individualized Education Plans (IEPs). Special Education services vary depending on the unique needs of each student. The department has a dedicated staff of teachers and paraprofessionals to assist students in reaching their goals in the areas of employment, education/training, and independent living.

Special Education teachers serve two main roles - classroom teaching and special education case management. They work collaboratively with other school staff members, related service providers, and families to draft IEPs. Additionally, they provide specialized instruction, facilitate the provision of related services, monitor progress via formative assessments, and monitor the implementation of accommodations/modifications to promote student success and access to the academic and social/emotional opportunities available at LCHS.

Please do not hesitate to contact me or your student’s case manager with any questions or concerns.
