• Welcome!

    My name is Melissa Hinds and I am the Director of Special Education for North Lawrence Community Schools.

    NLCS special education services strive to ensure all students are given the highest quality education which meets their individual academic, social, emotional, and functional needs. Our main goals are to provide our eligible students with their Free Appropriate Public Education (FAPE) through the identification of, and comprehensive services to students who meet eligibility categories set forth in the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act, (IDEA) and Indiana’s Special Education Rules (Article 7) and ensure that our students receive their education within the Least Restrictive Environment (LRE).

    Should you have any questions regarding special education services in North Lawrence Community Schools, please do not hesitate to reach out to me. The best way to reach me is by email at hindsm@nlcs.k12.in.us. My phone number is 812-279-3521.
