The Child Study Team is designed to identify and provide services to eligible children who are classified as disabled. If a child is found to be eligible for Special Education, the CST will convene a meeting with the parents to develop the student's IEP (Individual Education Plan). This legal and confidential document is developed after a student is classified and is updated every year at an Annual Review Meeting, or sooner if necessary. Each classified student is assigned a case manager, a member of the child study team, who oversees the student's program and progress. Students that only require Speech services will e case managed by the Speech Therapist.
Since the IEP is a legal document, all staff responsible for its implementation must have a copy of it, familiarize themselves with the content, and keep progress notes/records. Lesson plans must indicate how lessons are adopted/differentiated to meet the student's IEP goals. Any questions regarding the IEP should be directed to the child's case manager. Four times a year, progress towards mastery of the goals is completed and sent home to the parents.
