Levy Special Education Center serves students who are severely multiply disabled, mentally handicapped, autistic and otherwise health impaired. Levy serves students from ages three to 21 whose educational needs can best be met in a special school setting. Levy has an unique hydrotherapy pool and state-of-the-art playground specially designed for students with physical disabilities.

Mission: The mission of Levy Special Education Center is to provide a safe and stimulating learning environment which promotes dignity and respect for the students and where individual needs of each student are met by a team of skilled, caring professionals in ways that are functional and meaningful.

Campus Improvement Program:
Each student’s Individual Education Plan is developed in alignment with the Kansas Extended Standards. The Unique Learning System has been adopted as the curriculum for Levy students. Motor, communication and social skills are pervasive, and are embedded into all aspects of programming.

Site Council Information- Each school has a site council, which is a group of parents, community members, business representatives, teachers and other school staff. Site councils identify, consider and discuss educational problems and issues at the school. Councils provide advice and counsel for evaluating state, school district and school site performance goals and objectives. Councils may also recommend methods that may be employed at the school site to meet these goals and objectives. Staff, parent and community agencies that serve people with disabilities serve on the Levy Site Council.
