A message from the Special Education Department:

In light of the school closings and rapidly evolving COVID-19 crisis, the GJSD Special Education Department is dedicated to providing students with as much support as we can.  At this time, all scheduled CSE meetings are continuing to run as scheduled. Meetings are taking place at the High School Special Education office. However, you do not need to be physically present to participate in these meetings.  Access has also been provided to video and phone conferencing. Families and community members should check their emails and phone messages for information on the link to participate via these platforms.

We encourage all families to work with students at home by utilizing the information provided by classroom teachers through instructional resource packets and/or online instructional resources.  IEP service providers will be reaching out to families for OT, PT, Speech, and Counseling to check in on students and provide weekly support and guidance as well.

Throughout this time, if you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us at 518-736-1708 or email nlent@johnstownschools.org.
