Updates on Special Education
March 24, 2020
Dear families of students who receive special education services,
Yesterday morning we mailed letters to share guidance provided by the Department of Education and the Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction. Updated guidance was subsequently issued yesterday evening. We apologize for any confusion or inconvenience caused by this sudden change.
The new guidance indicates that districts will be providing continuous learning and instruction for all students, using non-traditional formats to ensure the safety of students and staff during the COVID-19 pandemic. This includes educational and related services for students with disabilities. You will be contacted by your students’ case managers soon to schedule IEP team meetings. Specifics of service provision for individual students will be determined by IEP teams. Due to safety considerations and the “Stay At Home” proclamation from our governor, services will not be provided in person at this time.
We are looking forward to working with you to determine and provide appropriate service delivery to meet your students’ needs to the greatest extent possible during the school closure. As information related to educational services and COVID-19 can change rapidly and unexpectedly, please frequently refer to our website: steilacoom.k12.wa.us All future updates will be posted on our website and sent via School Messenger. If you are unable to access the website, please feel free to call Student Services at (253) 983-2238 to request information.
