Special Education

Parents, thank you for your continued collaboration and support. Below, you will find links to online learning activities. You may choose from these, for your child with a disability to complete from May 4 – May 22. New activities will be released every 2-3 weeks. The next release of new materials will be June 1.

What can I expect from my child’s case manager?

Your child’s case manager will contact you at least twice a month, by Zoom or email. If you would like more frequent contact, please notify the case manager. The case manager may also determine that more frequent contact is needed. If you would like a related service provider (OT, PT, SLP, AT, Teacher of the Deaf and Hard of Hearing, or Teacher of the Visually Impaired, etc.) to contact you, please notify your child’s case manager.

What if I do not know the name of my child’s case manager?

Email the principal, assistant principal or special education coordinator at your child’s school, asking for the case manager’s name.

What activities should my child do?

Your child should work on the activities that best meet his or her needs, based on age, grade, and ability. If you aren’t sure which activities to choose, contact your child’s case manager. Not every activity is appropriate for every student.

What should I do if I have trouble accessing the online materials?

Start by contacting your child’s case manager for help. If needed, go to the Parent and Guardian Support page on this Remote Learning site , where you’ll find links to helpful information for using online materials.

Can my child’s case manager contact me on my cell phone?

No, we are asking staff to use email or Zoom to contact all students and families. We are asking staff not to use their personal devices to contact parents.

Will these lessons be graded?

Middle and high school special education classes will be graded using an S or U. Elementary student work will not be graded.

Are leveled readers available to my elementary student?

Yes. In the student’s digital Wonders account, go to the dashboard and select the book icon book icon. If the leveled reader in the dashboard is not the correct level (on, beyond, approaching, ELL), contact the classroom teacher, who can adjust the level. Parents can search and read all leveled readers for the entire year on the student’s digital Wonders account, by typing “leveled reader” in the search box. Materials can be found here. If you have questions, contact your child’s case manager.

Is Lexia available to my elementary student?

Yes, your child now has access to Lexia Core 5. Lexia is a computer-based online learning program that lets students work at their own pace through a. variety of fun activities and games that build reading skills in the areas of phonological awareness, phonics, structural analysis, fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension. The Lexia Company has given all K-5 students in LPS access to their program for free through June 30. The first time your child logs into Lexia he/she will do an auto-placement activity that takes about 20 minutes and determines where your child should start in the program. This auto-placement activity is just like one of the games in the program except it will not tell your child if he/she got the correct answer. Once the auto-placement activity is done, your child can start learning on Lexia immediately. This document will walk you through how to access Lexia through the LPS portal: (attach handout here, won’t attach through the comment box).

What will ESY services look like for my child?

ESY services will be held virtually. If your child qualifies for ESY the coordinator or case manager will reach out to you to discuss your child’s plan.

Resources for Teachers & Students

What students may do

  • Students who have access to the internet can continue to work in their classes.

  • When a student needs access to an assignment sheet, study guide or lab, they should email their teacher. The teacher will then share the document with the student. When the student completes the assignment, they should email their teacher to communicate they are done. Alternatively, teachers may be creating a Google Classroom where assignment sheets are available in a digital, editable format so students may complete and turn them in electronically.

  • When a student is ready to take a quiz, email the teacher. Quizzes are open note. We WILL be allowing students to take tests. When a student is ready to take a unit test, email the teacher. The teacher will unlock the test for the student to complete.

We will be posting sports performance workouts that can be completed at home, by yourself, with minimal equipment.
