Temporary IEP meeting procedures
March 13, 2020
The Lockport District 91 community is committed to keeping all children, families, and staff safe as we navigate through the COVID-19 public emergency. The district continues to monitor the public health issue of COVID-19 and its impact in the Chicago area. As a result, the district is examining ways to lessen the contact of individuals who are not students or staff members in our programming. Because of the significant incubation period of this virus, all IEP meetings will be held as phone conferences rather than as our typical preference for an in-person meeting. This shift of having phone conference meetings rather than in-person meetings will occur until it is deemed no longer to be appropriate.
As a parent/guardian, you are asked to sign in for a meeting. During the course of the meeting, one of the IEP team members will explicitly ask you as a parent to acknowledge your attendance and that the form will be initialed by the team member. It is also important to note that all other aspects of meeting paperwork expectations remain.
If there are questions about this shift or other related topics, please feel free to reach out to me. We will continue to provide information about your child’s education during this time and healthcare related information that may impact your child or your family. The district remains committed to parent/guardian meaningful participation in the IEP process and values your input as an IEP team member.
Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns either by email or by telephone.
