Special Education News Update

January 19, 2015

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. once said,

"Life's most persistent and urgent question is: 'What are you doing for others?"

Important Information:


If you haven't seen a PLAAFP in Tienet yet today, you should check it out! Tienet FINALLY changed from those skinny columns to something that looks professional and makes sense to look at!


Please let your building secretaries know about IEPs that you have scheduled. Please add them to your building's Google Calendar as well! If you would like to forward email your secretaries a copy of the IEP invitation that is sent from ESA, that would be ok!

Staff Changes:

Please let Molly know if you have interns coming in to work with you and when they leave (at the end of the semester/year). It is helpful to have knowledge of or some information about who's intern is where. Thank you!

Please keep in mind....

Spring Assessments:

Please be proactive in thinking about supports, considerations, and accommodations that students will need for the Spring Assessments.
