The purpose of this page is to provide updates, FAQs and Links related to student services during the remote and hybrid models.  

Each and every student must be considered a general education student first with full access to all resources, services, events, and activities in our schools.


SPECIAL EDUCATION TEAM CHAIRS

Team chairs coordinate the special education process at each school ensuring quality programming and compliance with Federal and State Special Education Laws and Regulations.  They are school based and work alongside your child's general education and special education teachers and service providers.

STUDENTS RECEIVING IN PERSON INSTRUCTION DURING REMOTE LEARNING

In the remote learning model, a small group of students will be able to receive in person instruction, as is feasible, given health and safety parameters. DESE (Department of Elementary and Secondary Education) provided guidance on who should be considered. The initial in person group includes students classified as "high needs" based on their specific IEP services.  

The in person instruction would be in the AM for up to four school days:  M, T, TH, F based on service needs. 


COMMONLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Q:  What about the students who are not high needs or not in the initial group for in person instruction?

A:   Students not eligible within the "high needs" group will receive their IEP services remotely until such time as we can extend in person services.  Our hope is to move to a hybrid model for all students once health and safety parameters allow.

Q: Who should I talk to about my child's schedule in the remote and hybrid models?

A: Parents are encouraged to maintain contact with their child's teachers and serviced providers throughout the year. Please contact them first with specific questions related to curriculum related issues.  For questions related to IEP meetings and evaluations please contact your Team Chair.

Q:  My child has a reevaluation, initial or annual meeting due, how will that work during the remote and hybrid models?

A:  Initial and reevaluation of students will be conducted in person following health and safety parameters.  A parent can choose to delay the initial or reevaluation process by notifying the team chair.  All IEP meetings will be remote unless a parent requests an in person meeting.
