Special Education Resources during school closing.

Special Education Resources during school closing:

The office of Student Services is currently open and will provide regular updates to parents & students as information becomes available.  Your child’s special education needs, civil rights, and disability rights are our top concerns at this time. 

Please see this Q&A document from the Office of Special Education that provides answers regarding the provision of special education programming and related services, homebound and hospital bound supports and services, as well as 504 plan accommodations during this extended break. 

Both teachers and therapists may be reaching out to you regarding specific information on upcoming IEP meetings, 504 plan meetings,  and or evaluations. As a result of the closure, these activities may either be postponed or held via phone or virtual meeting format.  You may be asked to sign information releases or evaluation extensions depending on circumstances. We ask for your patience and understanding as we work through this in partnership with you.  

Lastly, our amazing team is busy creating resources and information that can be referenced from home and will hopefully help support your individual student’s needs from home.  Here are some links:

Lastly, we want to make available some of the written materials we’ve produced to document our programs including various guidelines, manuals, etc
