Implementation of Services for Students with IEPs and 504 Plans

The DeKalb County School District has determined that all schools will open for the 2020-2021 school year with a distance/remote learning model to account for the current substantial spread of COVID-19.

While the District is fully committed to providing appropriate support to students with disabilities, some special education classes, programs, services, and/or accommodations may look different in a remote learning environment. Special education teachers will provide students with instruction in a remote learning format that is content-specific, relevant, and that will address individual IEP strengths and needs. Synchronous and asynchronous instructional sessions will be provided and specially designed instruction for students with disabilities will be implemented to the greatest extent possible. All teachers will continue to implement the Section 504 accommodations when applicable. Necessary evaluations will be conducted, if possible, in accordance will health and safety guidance. The District will continue to conduct virtual 504 and IEP meetings.

Due to the serious nature of the current COVID-19 pandemic, the District will not provide in-person instruction for students as a safety precaution at this time. All teachers and related services providers will work diligently to ensure that remote learning activities are accessible for students. It is the expectation that related service providers will provide asynchronous and synchronous sessions with students.

A Distance Learning Plan (DLP) will be completed for all students with disabilities to address IEP programming/services. The plan will describe how IEP services will be implemented during distance/remote learning and will be developed in collaboration with parents.
