Special Education Covid Recovery Services(CRS) Frequently Asked Questions(FAQ)

Last updated: [April 30, 2021]

Special Education COVID Recovery Services (CRS) address potential learning loss due to the impact of the pandemic. CRS is an additional service, which is not part of A student’s IEP, designed to address the impact of COVID-19 related disruptions on a student’s educational needs. Each IEP team makes an individualized determination on whether the student needs COVID Recovery Services either through the IEP process and/or mutual agreement between Parents and school staff. Your child’s Case Manager will send a PWN to families of students who qualify for CRS. Families will be asked to accept/decline by either returning the PWN, using the bit.ly link or scanning the QR code in the PWN. CRS will focus on providing intensive reading, writing and math instruction, and IEP goals.
