Exciting News!!!

The documents are also at the same website.

Special Populations and the Law Conference

We had good attendance and a positive response to the law conference and plan to have it available through webinar again next year. This conference is not available for viewing but we do have the PowerPoint handouts in the Special Services office.

Behavior Consult at IEP Meetings

If you have a student who receives Behavior Consulting Services from TL, please invite her to the student’s IEP meeting.

Extended School Year

If any of your IEP students have extended school year on their IEP, please contact Donna for summer school registration forms. Pages 93-94 of the Special Education Manual 2015 delineate ESY eligibility.
