Hello Exceptional Education family,

We are facing unprecedented times which call for flexible measures in order to ensure our students’ individualized needs are met. In order to meet the needs of all students, we are asking that all exceptional education teachers are available next week via email, phone and/or virtual assistance. We also ask that all teachers review instructional packets delivered to schools in order to make the necessary modifications and/or accommodations necessary for individual students. If you are working with alternate assessment students receiving modified instruction, please create individualized educational materials that address the needs specified in their IEP.

If you have questions or concerns, our exceptional education supervisors and lead teachers will be available for additional support. This situation will be closely monitored and we will continue to provide additional information within the coming week.

We greatly appreciate your flexibility and willingness to meet the needs of our students. Thank you for all you do! 

Sincerely, 

Garfield Adams, Ed.S,
Director of Exceptional Education
