Since March 2020, there have been many changes and impacts to education, as the pandemic has impacted and influenced all parts of life, including school. The pandemic has made learning hard for some students receiving special education services, and these students may need “Recovery Services” to return their learning back to where it should be.
Recovery Services are additional special education services to address the lack of appropriate progress on pre-pandemic IEP goals for missed or limited services, or for other reasons as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
All students with IEPs need their goal progress reviewedand considered, to determine if they require Recovery Services.
The Recovery Services discussion should take place at the next annual IEP meeting, which includes the parent/ guardian/ adult student and all SDI/ related services providers.
ALL students, general or special education, have been impacted by the pandemic. Special Education Recovery Services are intended to be in addition to general education recovery services and will address specific IEP goals/ qualifying areas.
Recovery Services are usually provided outside of the school day, such as over breaks, or before or after school. Occasionally, students may need additional instruction during the school day.
During summer of 2023, Chehalis Schools will provide Recovery Services for the last few students demonstrating a need for additional support due to impacts of the pandemic. Communicate with your child’s case manager for additional information.
