On March 13, Governor Jay Inslee closed all schools in the state of Washington through April 24. We know this is an unprecedented closure for our educational system and because of that, there are many details we are currently working out. We want you to know that the safety of your student is our priority.
You may be wondering what to expect during the school closure related to IEPs, evaluations, and special education services. We are discussing plans on how meetings can be held and services delivered. Additional information will be coming soon.
During the mandatory closures, school districts are prohibited from providing in-person educational, recreational, and other K–12 school programs using their school buildings and facilities by OSPI. If educational services are provided for the general education population, then IEP services will also be provided to students with disabilities.
We know that many students and families have additional questions, we will do what we can to address all questions. If you have specific questions related to your student’s special education services or IEP related to this closure, please call the special services department at 360-313-1158 or email the special services manager assigned to your child’s school.
