BCS Special Education Connection



Thank you so much to everyone for a successful first semester in Bartlett City Schools!! We have a lot to be thankful for this holiday season!!

Wrapping up this semester!

Things to remember:

1. December 15th - Preschool, Speech/Language, OT,PT caseloads due to Sarah. Please email them to her.

2. Progress reports: Related service providers need to have their information entered by December 17. Teachers have their information entered by December 19th. Case managers will need to finalize progress reports by December 19.

3. TCAP Portfolios: Hopefully, all data points have been gathered, signatures received, and you're waiting on binders from us. If you have already completed yours and are ready for them to be checked, please let Sarah and I know before December 19th. We will come and get them from you. We have not received the binders from the state yet, but we can go ahead and check them and return them to you. Once the binders come in, we will get those to you and you can put the information in the binder. This would really assist us in the checking process being that there is only the two of us. Any help you can give is more than appreciated!

In the future, when holding IEP meetings, please do not get consent for related service evaluations when the service provider is not in the meeting. If the team feels that a related service evaluation is needed, they should discuss this with the related service provider ahead of time and invite them to the meeting or have them give input as to the necessity of the evaluation. If a parent asks during a meeting, the team can explain to the parent that they will consult with the related service provider who can do an informal observation and report back to the team.
