Our special education teams will continue to hold IEP/GIEP/MDE/504 meetings via Google Hangout Meet. Students with Disabilities will receive online and asynchronous learning activities from our special education teachers. For regular education subjects, special education teachers will collaborate with regular teachers to provide additional instructional resources and accommodations to support students. This interim plan is intended to remain in effect only during the period of emergency school closure. The program and placement described in a student’s current IEP will resume when the emergency closure ends.
Our school psychologists are available to continue to support our East Penn students and families. East Penn will continue to issue a permission for three-year evaluations that require a review of records and no additional testing. For the evaluation reports and reevaluations reports for which we have received parent consent on or before March 13, 2020 our school psychologists will be issuing reports that summarize the records and testing completed prior to the school closure. 504 Service Agreements will continue to be written, revised and updated according to the regularly established timeline.
Gifted Teachers will provide enrichment activities to students and collaborate with content area teachers to provide strategies and resources to ensure that students are learning and challenged. This interim plan is intended to remain in effect only during the period of emergency school closure. The program and placement described in a student’s current GIEP will resume when the emergency closure ends
