Dear Parents/Guardians of students served by Tri-County, Tri-County is working alongside the school districts we serve to develop a continuous learning plan for the students with IEPs. A group of special education providers have been working diligently to come up with creative ways for students to receive opportunities to learn during the next two months. The first week after Spring Break, parents will be receiving a phone call from the special education provider(s) their child is served by. This will be the first of many contacts parents will receive from the provider. If parents do not receive a phone call after the first week of Spring Break, it may be we do not have current parent contact information. In that case, parents are asked to email the provider with current contact information. Provider emails are on their local school district's website. Parents will also be receiving a Prior Written Notice that describes how services will be delivered over the next two months. This will not be the same type of delivery model or number of minutes as indicated on the IEP - that is impossible with the current CDC Guidance on social distancing. When school returns to normal, the IEP team will reconvene to determine to what extent compensatory services may be needed. While we are working through uncharted territory, Tri-County understands that parents are too. Many of our students, your children, have many needs which will impact day-to-day life for parents. Safety is our number one priority for students and staff, but please know that our staff already miss and are worried about their students. Stay safe during this time- we want to see each of our students' beautiful faces on the other side of this pandemic.
