Special Education

  • Students participating in special class programming (15:1:1, 12:1:1, 12:1:(3+1), etc.) will attend school in-person Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday unless they have opted for Remote Only Learning. On Wednesdays, students will engage in remote learning and may have an opportunity for in-person related services.
  • Students who benefit from consultant teacher services and/or resource room will receive these through a combination of in-person and remote services. Individual goals will remain worked on and closely monitored. Progress monitoring of goals will continue, with regular reporting sent home quarterly.
  • Collaboration and communication between teachers, providers and parents will remain essential. Providers/teachers will maintain documentation of student engagement and parental communication.
  • Whether remote or in-person all students will continue to receive required modifications and accommodations, including assistive technology, per their Individual Education Plan (IEP).
  • Related services (PT, OT, SLP, SW) will be provided through a combination of in-person and remote. Therapists will work closely with parents and teachers to ensure individual needs are addressed and met.
  • For all questions or concerns regarding Special Education:
  • Continued collaboration with the Committee on Preschool Special Education (CPSE) program providers to ensure continuity of services and supports for eligible students.

Special Education Class

Students will attend school 4-5 days per week based on their specific needs and specific programming.

Related Services

Students will continue to receive their services through a combination of in-person and virtual sessions.

Additionally, we have clarified some information for parents: 

Masks

The expectation is all students must wear a mask in school and on the bus. If a parent believes their child is unable to wear a mask due to a medical condition, he/she should:
    • Speak to child’s physician

    • Parent/guardian must provide medical documentation to school

    • Once medical documentation is received, a CSE or 504 meeting will be scheduled to determine a plan and accommodations. 

Use of 1:1 Aides

We have a number of staff who assist and support our students.

  • Students who require the assistance of a 1:1 aide will not always be able to practice social distancing. 

  • Aides will be provided PPE to ensure the health and safety of both the student and themselves.
