College Planning for Students with Disabilities
Online Program and Special Education Services
Last school year, the Oregon Department of Education required districts to provide a Comprehensive Distance Learning (CDL) option for students. At that time, we provided special education services in an online or hybrid setting. This school year, the ODE has not imposed this requirement and has prioritized in-person learning.
One thing we have learned from this past year is that most students, especially those with special education services, make more meaningful progress with in-person instruction. Therefore, students enrolled in the online program will receive special education services at their home school building. We have developed layered protection protocols to provide special education services in a safe environment for students, including personal protective equipment, staff vaccinations, physical distancing, and enhanced ventilation and air purification.
Each case manager with students enrolled in the online program will be scheduling an IEP review meeting to determine which services a student may need while engaged in the online setting, including transportation if needed. The case manager will then develop a schedule of how services will be provided at the home school.
We know that COVID has had a significant impact on families, especially families who have a student who experiences a disability. We appreciate your patience as we work through this dynamic environment. As we move through this school year, we will continue to evaluate the need and capacity for us to provide online special education services.
