Transition Meetings

Thank you for your patience as we have held off on having staff building transition meetings this year as we continue to plan for the 2016-2017 school year. We have a plan for staff building transition meetings as well as transition meetings for parents who have requested them. The schedule of dates will be sent early next week after staff have been notified of their assignment for next year. Those meetings will involve having the intervention specialist of the sending building along with members of the receiving team. In the meantime, case mangers of students transitioning should begin completing part of of the appropriate staff document form. This year we are also asking for teams to complete a new green transportation sheet for next school year. If students receive speech services sending intervention specialists will also need to collaborate with the SLP to include information regarding services. If you have any questions please feel free to contact Drew or Bethany.
