Special Education Distance Learning Message:
During this extended closure of school buildings, SSD case managers are creating Distance Learning Plans for each student who receives special education services. The plans are a summary of each child's goals and accommodations and also include information about how the child's special education services will be provided during the closure. MRH general education staff and SSD staff are working together to ensure all students have meaningful access during this time of remote learning. These Distance Learning Plans will serve as a reminder to staff about what each student needs. The plans are also shared with parents and guardians so they know what to expect.
April 21: A message from SSD Superintendent Dr. Elizabeth Keenan: “While we’re all still adjusting to this new learning environment, we want to be sure to take moments to celebrate the things that are going well and the achievements of our students.”
