Jenny Fundus, Director of Special Education

Welcome to the Lincoln Public Schools Special Education Department website. My name is Dr. Jenny Fundus, and I am very proud to be part of a school district, which has a  strong mission to providing quality education to all students.

Lincoln Public Schools provides a broad variety of Special Education Services to more than 6,000 LPS students from birth to age 21 at all of our 58 public schools, as well as to students in our community’s private schools.

The Special Education Department employs high-quality staff members who have specialized skills and education in a wide range of areas which include: occupational and physical therapy, speech/language pathology, early childhood education, hearing and vision services, hearing testing, school psychology, behavior services, behavior therapy and resource services.

The goal of the Special Education Department is to provide quality services to all students every day. We strive to provide programming for students in environments which will allow them to be successful in their learning.

Our Special Education leadership team is working with our community and our schools to improve the district’s graduation rate, to increase the knowledge and skills of staff members, and to develop our cultural understanding.
