Special Education

 COMMUNICATION

All case managers, speech therapists, and special education administrators will be available via email.  We are asking that email be the primary communication mode, and phone calls be limited at this time.

Revision:  All related service providers, including our contracted providers, will be available through email or other Google services (i.e., Google Classroom, Google Meet, Google Email, Google Hangout).

Native Language:  All notices will be translated to the native language to the extent required by the District’s current practices.

Contracted Providers: We have contacted all providers, transportation, and nursing staff and notified them of our school closure and need for their availability, as necessary, for remote meetings.

Out of District Schools: Meetings will be held remotely and scheduled in cooperation with OOD staff, as needed and outlined elsewhere in this plan.

Parents: All parents have been made aware of the school closure and transportation suspension.

PROVISION OF APPROPRIATE SPECIAL EDUCATION AND RELATED SERVICES FOR STUDENTS WITH DISABILITIES

It is our expectation that students with IEPs participate in the district’s online instruction programs (virtual learning) as outlined by each of department.

  • Each teacher and related service provider has already, and continues, to develop individualized lessons that target each student’s IEP goals.
  • The activities have been or will be sent home to the families and will be monitored by the teacher, CST members and related service providers.
  • The duration of the activities aligns with the provision of general education services.
  • Each teacher and related service provider’s plans include adapted materials and assignments to meet individual student needs, as outlined in the student’s IEP and/or 504 Plan. They are also inclusive of the accommodations and modifications that are part of each student's IEP.

Revision 4/24/2020:  General Education and Special Education Teachers have been afforded district support and guidance to apply additional accommodations and modifications to support learners that are struggling with virtual learning (i.e., timeline extensions, reducing opportunities to demonstrate mastery, modifying grading expectations, providing alternate assignments, providing print copies, etc.).

 

 

 

RELATED SERVICES

Speech/Language:  Speech/Language services will be available for students via virtual platforms. In addition, where appropriate or necessary, home therapy packets will be sent via email to help review skills students have been working on in session.  

Revision 4/24/2020:  The district’s speech therapist has been providing classroom-based and individual speech session opportunities using a variety of Google platforms.  New Jersey signed legislation A3904 confirms that in the event of a school closure, the district may provide related services remotely, including speech language services, counseling services, physical therapy, occupational therapy, and behavioral services. Speech services outlined in a student’s IEP will be delivered virtually for the remainder of the health-related closure.  The speech therapist will designate session dates, procedures, and times directly with the parents/students.

Occupational Therapy/Physical Therapy: The Teams will meet to determine what if any regression has occurred.  Based on this information, they will determine how many sessions are necessary to catch the student up in addition to their regularly scheduled sessions.  However, we are working on developing home exercise plans designed to meet specific IEP goals and will release those as they become available and/or necessary.

Revision 4/24/2020:  The contracted providers for occupational and physical therapies have been providing classroom-based and individual activities prior to the approval for virtual services through email and print copies to parents/students.  New Jersey signed legislation A3904 confirms that in the event of a school closure, the district may provide related services remotely, including speech language services, counseling services, physical therapy, occupational therapy, and behavioral services.  OT/PT services outlined in a student’s IEP will be delivered virtually for the remainder of the health-related closure.  Service providers will designate session dates, procedures, and times directly with the parents/students.

Counseling: Counseling and School Psychology Services (SPS) will be provided through a virtual platform.  Parents will be contacted via email to arrange days and times to provide this service, as well as the specific components of the virtual delivery.

Revision 4/24/2020:  The school social worker and school psychologists will arrange for the best virtual platform to meet the needs of the individual student and coordinate the sessions to meet the required sessions in a student’s IEP.

COMPENSATORY SERVICES

Compensatory education and/or services will be determined on a case by case basis by the IEP Team within 60 school days of the District’s reopening.  Current progress and present levels have been recorded and will be used to determine what, if any, compensatory education is necessary when schools reopen.  This determination will involve an analysis of the regression of the student’s IEP goals and the level of services needed to recoup that regression.  An analysis of the student’s projected progress will also be undertaken.  Services are not going to be provided on a generic 1:1 calculation.

MEETINGS

Evaluations:  Due to Executive Order 104, all scheduled evaluations have been put on hold and will resume when school is back in session, aside from social histories that are able to be conducted via the phone.  Parents will be contacted via email to advise them of the evaluations scheduled, the postponement of those evaluations, and advised that scheduling will resume when schools reopen.

Annual Review Meetings: Case managers are attempting to have these meetings via tele-conferencing and/or Google Meet with staff members and parents.  Parents will be contacted via email and asked if they consent to hold the meetings remotely.  If the parent declines, the meeting will be postponed until schools reopen.

Eligibility Meetings: Eligibility meetings will take place as long as the evaluations have been completed, via the same procedure implemented for Annual Review Meetings.

Initial Planning Meetings and Revaluation Planning Meetings:  We will offer to conduct revaluation meetings remotely and advise parents/guardians that evaluations cannot be scheduled to begin until school is back in session.  For initial referrals, as we cannot complete evaluations or conduct observations of the students, we will be keeping a log and documenting all initials referrals and schedule meetings once schools re-open.

Any meetings that have been canceled or unable to take place will be rescheduled as soon as school is back in session.

MEDICALLY FRAGILE STUDENTS 

As medical services are provided by the District to the extent necessary to allow the student to access the educational program, those provisions of the students’ IEP that can be met remotely will be met.  Otherwise, we will advise parents that nursing staff and other medical related services cannot be provided at home and that alternative services need to be arranged by the parents.  All health care plans will be sent to each parent, so that they have the most up to date information on the student’s plan to share with private providers, as necessary.

CONFIDENTIALITY

All information shared electronically will include the following statement:

“CONFIDENTIALITY NOTICE: The information contained in this communication from the Lakeland Regional High School is confidential and may be considered a student record.   This email and all information contained or attached hereto is intended for the sole use of the persons or entities who are the addressees.  If you are not an intended recipient of this email, the dissemination, distribution, copying or use of the information it contains is strictly prohibited.  If you have received this communication in error, please immediately contact the sender to arrange for the return or destruction of this information.”

Revision 4/24/2020:  The district has completed multiple security measures to ensure that its Google Drive is HIPAA compliant.  

SECTION 504

Where appropriate given the remote instruction platform, all students with Section 504 plans will continue to receive the modifications and accommodations in their plan.

Facilities

  • We currently have our custodial staff coming into the building on a modified schedule to continually clean and sanitize all areas as well as maintain the building.
  • Our Facility Supervisor is ensuring that building checks and security checks are being completed daily.
  • HVAC needs can be monitored virtually. Daily boiler checks were completed in person when heating was necessary. Weekly physical checks of the entire HVAC system are still done in spite of the daily remote monitoring. Three uninvent leaks were discovered in this process and so we are vigilant about maintaining that level of scrutiny.
  • Our School Resource Officers are also completing routine patrol.
  • The Facilities Supervisor drives around the building several times each day looking for open windows or anything out of the ordinary.
  • Emergency generator tests (2 generators) are conducted twice each month as required and they are scheduled for their routing maintenance/inspection on May 12th.
  • Our Board of Education Office employees are coming in on a limited basis as well to check messages, complete administrative tasks, payroll, business matters, etc.
  • Grass is being maintained and fields are being mowed weekly. As the weather warms, that schedule will be increased to two times per week.
  • Our Transportation Dispatcher has been starting the buses and vans once each week per our Maintenance Mechanic’s recommendation.
  • Our Athletic Fields and Track are closed to the public pursuant the Executive Order.
  • We still have Horizon Pest Control come for their monthly inspection of the buildings to keep them pest free.
