Director of Special Education Message:
It is really hard to believe we have completed 15 weeks of the school year already.  The time is flying by.  As you see your child's progress please don't hesitate to contact my office and/or the teacher to talk about how things are going.  An IEP and a 504 are meant to be updated as needed.  If a service isn't working or isn't needed anymore you don't need to wait until annual reviews to change it, give us a call and set up a meeting!
March will begin our annual reviews. If the date and time you are scheduled doesn't work please call and let us see if we can reschedule.  As we plan for the future we want everyone involved and heard.  We will do all we can to schedule at a time that is convenient for you.
As the school year moves forward do not hesitate to contact the Special Education office, my door is always open!

What does this stand for?
Have you been in a meeting and heard initials that you don't understand? Here are a few defined...
CT - Consultant Teacher - This is a service where a Special Education teacher goes to the class with your child and assists them.  It may be with notes, it may be focusing, it may be modifying the work or some other area.  If it is Consultant Teacher - Direct the teacher will be in the class with your child.  If it is Consultant Teacher - Indirect the teacher will work with the classroom teacher to help them with things for your child. 
IEP- Individualized Education Program (not "plan") - An IEP is an important legal document. It spells out your child's learning needs, the services the school will provide and how progress will be measured. Several people, including parents, are involved in creating the document.

CSE - Committee on Special Education

CPSE - Committee on Preschool Special Education

RTI - Response to Intervention - Response to Intervention (RTI) is a multi-tier approach to the early identification and support of students with learning and behavior needs. The RTI process begins with high-quality instruction and universal screening of all children in the general education classroom.
