My student is in a Special Education Separate Day Class. How many days of in-person instruction will my student have?

Students in Separate Day Classes, both Mild/Moderate and Moderate/Severe will have five (5) days of in-person instruction.

Related services minutes provided virtually by providers (i.e., speech language pathologist, occupational therapists, physical therapists) in order to maintain stable cohorts.

Mainstreaming will be virtual as general education students are continuing in distance learning.



My student has an IEP. Who should I contact to schedule meetings regarding IEPs?

Case managers will continue to schedule annual IEPs. Special Education Supervisors and Content Specialists will offer a collaborative structure and framework to support teachers and families in the development, execution, and the accessing of continued distance learning, hybrid learning, or full time in-person learning depending on the option families chose. 

My student has an IEP and is not part of the January 25th return to in-person instruction. What should I expect in terms of instruction for my student?

Special Education Services will continue to partner with C&I and DoT to ensure that our students with IEPs have access to digital resources that support their individual needs and are aligned with IEP accommodations. Printed learning materials for reading, writing and math will continue to be available for students with Moderate/Severe needs who remain in distance learning to supplement synchronous virtual lessons.
