Early Childhood Special Education
Learning options are currently being developed for Early Childhood Special Education students. At this time, ECSE students do not need to complete the form to select a learning option. They will receive information at a later date. Special Education teachers and staff will work with parents to provide specialized instruction and support as defined by a student’s individualized education program (IEP). For students with disabilities, individual determinations regarding programming and services will be determined by the IEP team.
English Language Learners
Support and instruction for English Language Learners will be offered to students participating in In-person instruction. Plans are being developed for ways to support students participating in Virtual instruction.
Gifted Education will be provided to eligible students. WINGS students will participate via Virtual learning on an assigned day and time. Students who enroll in In-person instruction may participate in Gifted Education services during one of their virtual instruction days. Participating WINGS and Scholars students will receive additional information.
Students registered for the GO CAPS program will receive additional information about their placement soon.
Homeless Services will be provided to eligible students through the McKinney-Vento program.
SPS magnet schools and other specialty programs will not be available via the full-time Virtual option. Students participating in programs like Academy of Exploration, Academy of Fine and Performing Arts, IB PYP, IB MYP, IB DP, Scholars and Wonders of the Ozarks Learning Facility should select the In-Person learning option.
Students eligible for Title I services will continue to receive the supports provided through Title I programs in both In-Persona and Virtual instruction.
Special Education teachers and staff will work with parents to provide specialized instruction and support as defined by a student’s individualized education program (IEP). For students with disabilities, individual determinations regarding programming and services will be determined by the IEP team. Your child’s IEP case manager will be contacting you, prior to the beginning of school on August 24, to amend the IEP and discuss: 1. How your child is doing, 2. What current needs your child may have, and 3. How IEP services can be provided during this changing and challenging time due to COVID-19.
Wonder Years students will participate in the In-Person learning option, which offers two days of In-Person classes and three days of online learning at home. Read more details about the schedule for In-Person learning here.
