Remote options for families include access to video [asynchronous/synchronous] through virtual platforms of SeeSaw (Elementary) and Google Classroom/Echo (Secondary) as well as instructional calls and tele-therapy services. 
 
Additional manipulatives and student specific assistive technology and equipment are provided for use in the home based on a student's IEP.
 
Ongoing consultation from special education providers is available to support remote learners and when tele-therapy is not effective for speech services, physical therapy and related service counseling, walk-in services may be offered through an Admission, Review and Dismissal [ARD] Committee.
Teachers and students who receive on-campus services will participate/access instructional programs with supports and interventions consistent with their Individualized Educational Program [IEP].
 
Additional personal protective equipment has been added for special education teachers who serve children in Essential Academics, the Preschool Program for Children with Disabilities and Behavioral Settings.
 
Gowns, gloves and masks will be worn by personnel during personal care activities.
If a student is resistant to wearing a facial covering for long durations, a plan will be developed to support the student. Social stories and visual schedules for teaching the use of a mask with reinforcements to increase stamina will be introduced/reinforced. A student may also need frequent opportunities during the day for "mask breaks" while socially distanced.
Students who qualify for homebound-instructional arrangement/setting are served at home or hospital bedside for a minimum of four consecutive weeks as documented by a licensed physician.
 
A ​student's ARD or 504 committee determines the services provided to students in this instructional arrangement/setting.
Career & Technical Education
While on campus, students and staff participate in activities while observing safety protocols specific to their program, including social distancing when feasible and cleaning of shared items between individual use.  For classes taught remotely, students may be required to report to the campus to utilize specific equipment or demonstrate mastery of hands-on activities (For example: Welding).  
Students participating in the Ready, Set, Teach program are asked to follow all visitor protocols to enter their assigned elementary campus and classroom and adhere to safety procedures expected of student teachers.  
Gifted & Talented
On campus students will be clustered in a classroom with other students receiving GT services. They will continue their weekly pullout class as well have asynchronous opportunities for extension available via SeeSaw. Remote learning students meet synchronously with their GT Facilitator as well as have asynchronous opportunities for extension available via SeeSaw.
We will continue to follow board approved procedures for testing and identification. Remote students will report to campus for scheduled small group or individual testing sessions. 
GT Facilitators and Case Managers collaborate to provide remote asynchronous/synchronous instruction.
