District Response to School Closure Due to COVID-19
 
We thank you for your patience as we work through the impact of the COVID-19 school closures. In light of these unique circumstances, the District is committed to continuing the services and adaptations identified on your child's IEP or Section 504 plan as appropriate. The Section 504 coordinator and Special Education Teachers are collaborating with their general education counterparts to ensure adaptations are incorporated within our transition to remote instruction. Your child's special education teacher is planning the delivery of IEP services and will be working with you to determine what is appropriate. All IEP and MET meetings will continue via videoconferencing or telephonically. If your child's IEP or MET meeting had to be rescheduled, your child's team will be contacting you to reschedule a time. The IEP that has been in place will continue. Any evaluations that require face to face testing and/or observation are not able to take place at this time to ensure the health and safety of all students, staff and families. The District is working on alternate ways to address this issue and will provide an update as it is available.
Resources and updates will be provided on the District's COVID-19 web page. If you have questions unique to your child, please contact your child's special education case manager or Section 504 Coordinator.
