A short presentation that was put together by Lyndy Harrison, Candance Weaver, and Michael Tharp. We presented this at our monthly staff meeting to help inform our building about what is expected from them when it comes to IEP's, monitoring, and providing services.

Special Education Crash Course

1.   It is the law. Special Edcuation cases are the 4th most litigated in the U.S.

2.   It is important to document when aids and services are provided.

3. Case managers and the IEP team need this information to write the next IEP.

4. Document if a student refuses an accommodation.


How do I log supplementary aids and services?

Please use the Score Inspector located in your grade book to enter your accommodations.

How do I  rate the success of supplementary aids and services?

   When you arrive at the IEP, you will be expected to:

1.  Know what the student accommodations are.

2.  Report on and show if they have helped the student.

3.  If the accommodation is not successful, the conversation at the IEP needs to address a response to intervention,  (i.e.: add more support or modify the delivery or assessment  of the curriculum).

New: Second page of Teacher Report Form
