Students with IEPs
What can families of students with IEPs expect?
November 7, 2020
Due to the current district health status related to COVID and safety concerns, all special education programs and services will follow the District plan of temporary distance learning through Thanksgiving break. Following current safety guidelines, there will be no in-person services provided at this time. Today, the virus rate for the Clarkston Community Schools district is 70.6 cases per 10,000. We have 35 active positive cases in our school district and hundreds of staff and students in quarantine. Schools in Oakland County are at risk level E, the highest risk level, which is defined as either more than 150 cases per million or a 20% positivity rate. In September, we were at risk level C.
On Friday, November 6, the Oakland County Health Division recommended a pause in face-to-face instruction for all students at least through Thanksgiving to promote the health and well-being of all students and staff within Clarkston Community Schools.
Additional information will be shared next week to provide more details regarding student schedules, and instructional/evaluation plans. We know this is a very difficult time for all families and shifting plans so quickly is particularly challenging. We will do our best to maintain continuity of services during this period and will share updates if circumstances change.
We appreciate your support as we navigate these difficult times together.
