Special Education Supports and Services During COVID

Visit our COVID-19 homepage for additional topics.

The services your child receives during this time depends on what services your child normally receives. Students with an IEP are entitled to receive a free appropriate public education (FAPE).

Related Services

Your child may have additional social or emotional needs to deal with the impact of the pandemic.

Accommodations and Modifications 

The accommodations and modifications your child needs during distance learning might not be the same as what they needed in the classroom.

Assistive Technology 

There may be additional assistive technology needs that have to be considered.  Districts must consider the student’s technology needs in order to provide access to regular and special education services. If additional technology or internet service is needed for a student to receive FAPE, it must be provided by the school, at no charge.
