SPED Department Update

Week of February 10th

What do you think?

This format is a super simple way to organize info I have to give you. If you think this is not helpful or you like the email format better please, please, let me know. I was just thinking it may at least be more useful to share resources and info and not receive 1,839,440 emails in one day.

Medicaid Forms: Need as many returned as possible

Medicaid forms help us keep track of students and help with assistance, as in $$$$

Please try to hunt down any Medicaid forms you gave your caseload.


  • Hunt them down
  • Make a follow-up phone call
  • Make a copy of the form just in case (haha) the student looses it

They are looking for YOU to join to form a sub-committee for the High School, it may be a great opportunity to have your concerns, ideas, and opinions be heard. They are looking for:



  • Among many issues they are looking to see what great collabs look like and what they DON'T look like and the resources they need to run properly
  • Meeting times will only be 1-3 times, all work is expected to be done before April 5th.

**Please let me know by 2/13/14: the timeline is a short one
