Special Education

  • Students participating in all Special Education class programming/services, (integrated co-teaching classes, consultant teacher services, resource room, etc) will attend school in-person.   The school will facilitate remote instruction for any student who requires it due to COVID-19 symptoms or exposure, for those who are deemed medically vulnerable.
  • Individual goals will remain worked on and closely monitored. Progress monitoring of goals will continue, with regular reporting sent home quarterly.
  • Collaboration and communication between teachers, providers, and parents will remain essential. Providers/teachers will maintain documentation of student engagement and parental communication.
  • Whether remote or in-person all students will continue to receive required modifications and accommodations, including assistive technology, per their Individual Education Plan (IEP).
  • Related services (Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy, Speech and Language Therapy LP,  Psychological Services) will be provided in-person.  Therapists will work closely with parents and teachers to ensure individual needs are addressed and met.
  • Continued collaboration with the Committee on Preschool Special Education (CPSE) program providers to ensure continuity of services and supports for eligible students.
