Exceptional Student Education (Special Education)

Supporting our Students during Coronavirus

Our goal is to provide continuity of Exceptional Student Education (ESE) services and supports in alternative ways during school closures while promoting continued progress and inclusion in the general education curriculum or through access points.

To support students with an Individual Education Plan (IEP), school districts have been given flexibility in how services and supports may be provided. Such flexibility may include the provision of special education and related services through the use of instructional telephone calls, homework packets, Internet-based or virtual lessons and/or therapies, and other available distance-based learning approaches.

To the greatest extent possible, each student with a disability will be provided the special education and related services identified in the student’s IEP developed under IDEA, or a plan developed under Section 504. (34CFR §§ 300.101 and 300.201 (IDEA), and 34 CFR § 104.33 (Section 504).

IEP teams including parents and all appropriate IEP team members will meet virtually utilizing Zoom or telephonically utilizing conference calls to conduct annual reviews, revisions and eligibility staffings. Any meetings that do not occur due to circumstances beyond our control, shall be scheduled following the opening of school. All efforts to meet and communicate with parents, students and staff will be documented. Data will be maintained regarding student progression and any regression or need for remediation shall be addressed when school reopens.
