Chilton County Schools special education department has developed plans to provide service to students while school buildings are closed due to COVID-19.
“Students who receive special education services will continue to be connected to their special education case manager and related service providers,” Special Education Director Michelle Coppedge said.
“Case managers will work together with families to design instruction unique to each student. Each student with an IEP (Individualized Education Program) will have an individualized plan for their distance learning that addresses the student’s goals, services and accommodations during distance learning. Related services, speech therapy, occupational therapy, physical therapy, counseling services, vision services, etc., will be provided via the service provider based on the individualized plan for each student.”
