Transition to Full-Time Remote Learning

Student Services

Remote Learning Update 11/16/20

SWL Families,
 
I want to provide a few updates in regards to special education as the district transitions to this brief period of remote learning.
 
Students with disabilities will continue to have their specially designed instruction delivered virtually during this period, this includes related services. As we learned in the Spring, this may look a little different and there will undoubtedly be an adjustment period. 
 
Your child's IEP team consisting of their intervention specialist, general education teachers, related service providers, and administrator are working tirelessly to form a plan that prioritizes student learning in order to maintain progress in the general education curriculum and in the IEP. Our teams are flexible. They understand that extra zooms and phone calls are just what some kid’s need while for some families a significant amount of extra contact can be overwhelming. Please reach out to your child's team if hiccups arise and as you find things that are especially helpful for your unique situation and family.
 
There are a handful of students in some of our buildings who will come in for short periods of the day for in-person learning during this time due to the complexity of their disability that does not permit them to access learning virtually. However, in the improbable event that the district is forced to remain remote for an extended period of time beyond the holiday season, all students with disabilities will have the opportunity to meet with their Intervention Specialist in-person to work on their IEP-specific goals. At this time the district anticipates a full return to in-person learning following Christmas break.  
 
Please know that your child’s support team is here for your family during this transition. Don’t hesitate to reach out to the team for assistance as needs arise.
