INTRODUCTION TO SERVICE REVIEW PACKET Service Review Procedures 1.The EC teacher of record should complete the Service Review Recommendation Form with all requested information. Any incomplete forms will be returned for corrections. 1.Contact your school assigned EC Program Specialist through email and advise that the form is complete and ready for review. 1.The EC Program Specialist will share this information with the Service Review Committee on a monthly basis. 1.If the Committee requires additional information, the Program Specialist will request in writing needed documentation. This will delay the placement recommendation to the next regularly scheduled monthly meeting. 1.The Service Review Committee will provide in writing, to the EC teacher, recommendations for the IEP team.
PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT SURVEY We are listening…
PROCEDURES MANUAL We need volunteers to review the manual after program specialists and instructional coaches rework it. Contact your program specialist and/or coach if interested in supporting with this project.
LEA PROFILE ASSESSMENT TOOL Log of Services We have to be able to prove that services were provide as stated on the IEP. Can you prove that?
GENERAL REMINDERS: ● DPI Q & A – will be in Google ● ASU is offering a Graduate Certificate in Autism Spectrum Disorders ● High School Staff: The ACT and ACT Plan Alternate Assessment process and paperwork is the same as last year. Deadlines are quick. See Janet Drum for support. ● Read To Achieve: Updates in New Legislation ● Be sure to check out the EC website. It will change formatting in the fall but will continue to offer the same content. ● Be sure that your goals for students match their needs. ● We required that all IEP’s for August and September be done in the spring; however, I have seen some that were not completed. Let your program specialist know so the previous case manager can get this done ASAP.
● Be diligent about watching your yield and stop signs - we suggest you make a calendar now. ● Remember: having students in the least restrictive setting is our top priority; we are to provide services in-addition to the regular curriculum. Really look at last year’s Extend II students in self contained. is this really meeting their needs? Our goal is always to exit students whenever goals have been meet. ● Special Olympics - tentative date is April 24th.
