Extended School Year (ESY) Updates
Case managers need to contact Melynda Kaifes if you have materials/equipment that will need to be transported and cannot be sent through interoffice mail.
AT TIP of the Week:
Remember: The AT Considerations Section of the IEP is a great place to communicate what the team plans to trial in the coming IEP year. Anything we add to the IEP as an accommodation or instructional support needs to have data to support the need, so a trial with data collection would be in order. This includes FM Systems, adaptive keyboards, Books in audio formats, etc.
Begin this process by communicating with the AT Facilitator and documenting a trial is planned in the AT Considerations of the student's IEP. Contact the AT Facilitator for additional help with the process.
