Monday Memo

Week of December 7th

Data Folders--Collected THIS Friday (December 11)

Please be reminded that you will be collecting data folders this Friday, December 11th. Coteachers should collect all the folder for their coteaching students. Case managers who have students who are not served within a coteaching class, please remember to retrieve those folders on Friday. Please aim to have your data points inputted prior to December 17th so that folders can be returned to teachers prior to the holiday break. Please let me know if you are not receiving work samples from teachers. Thank you for all of your work on this.

Special Education Funding

I know that many of you have been wondering where is the money???? It is here; however, I have heard from many of you that you need more release days to give you additional time to put information into STORI. Therefore, I am trying to do some creative trading so that we can get a couple more release days. After I get that settled, I will release the remaining funds to each of you. You should receive more information just prior to the holiday break.

Psychological Referral

At the beginning of the year, I sent detailed emails to each of you about your re-evaluations for this year. Within this email, there was information about psychological referrals. It is important that you are adhering to those deadlines so that Mr. Murphy can have a psychological report ready for you at your meetings. This is a great luxury to which our parents and you can benefit. If for some reason you have misplaced or deleted the email that I sent, Ms. Caravella will be sending out a reminder email this week. I thank you in advance for your follow-through with this matter.
