    CSE Meetings & Annual Reviews

    For the 2020–21 school year due to COVID-19 restrictions, CSE meetings will be scheduled virtually (video/telephone conferencing) using the Zoom platform. Your child’s case manager will be in contact with parents/guardians as the meeting date approaches with further details. Please contact the Office of Student Services or your child's special education case manager with questions.

    Evaluations & Referrals

    If an evaluation of a student with a disability or a suspected disability requires a face-to-face assessment, the evaluation will take place following Department of Health guidelines to ensure safety of the student and evaluator. Evaluations, reevaluations and observations that do not require face-to-face assessments (like a records review) may take place using Zoom on an as-needed basis, with parent/guardian consent. Please contact the Office of Student Services or the school psychologist in your child’s building with questions.
