    Happy New Year! SHSD's social emotional learning skill for this month is goal setting. At every annual IEP meeting, the team sets goals for your student to help them make progress towards mastering grade level standards. Often, school staff will draft recommended goals for the team to review at the meeting. While this is a sound practice, sometimes parents may feel like they agree with the goals without really understanding them. This checklist from Understood.org is a great resource to use during meetings to ensure that your student's goals are clear, attainable, and incorporate their voice and yours. Thank you for collaborating with us as a vital member of your student's IEP team!
