    Special Education and 504
    Students receiving special education services through an IEP are unique and require special services in the event of a closure.  USDOE guidance indicates that once schools provide learning opportunities to students during closure the LEA must make every effort to provide special education services and related services to a child in accordance with the IEP. 

    Communicate and Plan
    Building principals, 504 case managers and/or SPED case managers shall connect with students and families concerning the continuation of services.  This communication should be done in a way that ensures access by all parties normally part of the IEP team.  Case managers should pay attention to:

    • Resumption of services
    • Duration and scheduling of service
    • Educational services being provided

    Notice to Change without in IEP Team Meeting
    Following guidance, our case managers will be in contact with each IEP student's guardian to plan for services and accommodations.  Plans should be made for the continuation of services within a “Services at school” and “Services Online” model to be prepared for both scenarios.

    Hosting an IEP Meeting
    If feasible, the IEP team will review and complete necessary planning for each student with an IEP.  If feasible and meeting the accessibility concerns of participants IEP meetings may be conducted virtually through Microsoft TEAMS or the Zoom platform.

    Services at School
    Central Cass Public School shall provide services to students based on the needs outlined in each child’s IEP.  Educational services decisions shall comply with guidance from the DOE and NDDPI.  These may include:
