Special Education & Support Services

SPECIAL EDUCATION

During school closures, students’ Individual Education Programs (IEPs) will be implemented to the best extent possible within a Remote Learning Environment.  Schools may not be able to provide all services in the same manner they are typically provided. Supports and services will be provided that allow equally effective access and opportunity for remote learning designed to reinforce knowledge and skills as well as to ensure students are provided with the opportunity to work towards IEP goals.   Plans for how and to what extent special education will be implemented for each student will be communicated through Remote Learning Support/Service Plans. Each student’s plan will be individualized to meet his/her/their needs and may include supports and services such as:  Email Check-In, Suggested Activities/Activity Packets (online and offline), Projects, Video Message/Post, Action Planning, Daily “To Do” lists, Phone Check-In, Apps, consultation, and instruction & services through individual or group phone or video conference and online platforms. Families should expect to hear from their student’s special education liaison within the upcoming week regarding the Remote Learning Supports/Services Plan for their student. For more information about Special Education during school closure, please visit the Special Education webpages.

 

 

ENGLISH LANGUAGE LEARNERS (ELL)

 

The ELL department is committed to making best efforts to assure that English Learner students have the support they need to access the general education instruction provided during this school closure. ELL teachers will work with teachers, staff, students, and families to support this learning synchronously (real time) and asynchronously (students learn at different times), as appropriate. ELL teachers will work to advance the English development of each ELL student in the four language domains (listening, speaking, reading, and writing) by providing appropriate support and instruction commensurate with individual student language level and needs. ELL teachers will also work to support the social-emotional wellbeing of their students and the particular needs of their families.

 

 

 

GUIDANCE SERVICES

 

Guidance counselors will be providing support and guidance to students and parents/guardians during this very difficult time.  Counselors will be available through email and can arrange meetings using Zoom or Google Meet / Hangout.  Students and parents are encouraged to email their specific counselor to provide updates on family situations, ask for advice, or to seek support during this difficult time.
