Special Education Department Update

Dear Parents/ Guardians, 
The special education department is excited to inform you that we have made some great changes within our district this year. If your child receives a related service, such as speech, occupational therapy, physical therapy or social work, service logs are now available upon request. Secondly, we have secured devices in our buildings for use at IEP meetings to obtain electronic signatures on the required forms. Although it is our intent to reduce paper consumption, hard copies will continue to be available to families. Lastly, prior to IEP meetings, case managers will provide families with draft copies of the written material that will be discussed in the IEP meeting so we can all be better-prepared.
We hope you are pleased with our improvement efforts. Please let me know if you have any questions.
