Special Education


Dear families,

As we prepare to shift to Remote Learning beginning on April 6th, the special education department in collaboration with district leaders, teachers, curriculum coaches, and support personnel have been busy creating plans and procedures to ensure remote learning is accessible and students are provided with the opportunity to work towards IEP goals.

With new guidance from the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) we are pleased to offer the following plan for Special Education During School Closure in the Needham Public Schools.

In this plan, you will find information about: 

 * Guidance from the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education
 * Remote Learning Support/Service Plans
 * Student Privacy and Confidentiality
 * Remote Evaluations
 * Remote IEP Meetings
 * Remote Documentation
 * Timelines
 * Out of District Schools
 * Upcoming guidance

Please visit our Tuesday, April 7th  School Committee meeting where this plan along with the District Remote Learning Plan will be discussed.  The School Committee Agenda includes the Zoom video and dial-in information.

In addition, SEPAC will hold a Virtual Chat with  the Superintendent and Assistant Superintendent for Student Support Services date to be announced soon.
