Information from the Office of Exceptional Education for upcoming school year. Knowing that each child and his/her family has different needs, we would like to provide exceptional education services in different ways. Here are our current instructional options for exceptional education services: Option 1: Your child comes into a school building and is provided with one-on-one services. Your child, at the most, may share a room with one other student but not the same space. Individual supplies and work spaces will be provided. The instructional room will be cleaned between student sessions. This would include services such as speech, occupational, and physical therapies. Option 2: Your child will have scheduled virtual sessions with their service provider and/or teachers. Your child may receive tasks to do between sessions to maintain skills. Services such as speech, occupational, and physical therapies could be provided virtually or during physical one-on-one sessions. The decision for any one-on-one sessions would be done by the IEP team, which includes the child’s guardian(s). Option 3: Your child will be provided non-virtual/non-internet based tasks and receive appropriate support from his/her service provider as documented on his/her IEP. Before September 8th, your child’s exceptional education teacher will be contacting you via your contact information on file to discuss these options.

Attention: Teachers and Administrators! All TCSD summer professional development for teachers will be delivered in an online format. All new teachers will still report to the district on Monday, August 10th at 8:00 AM at the Middle School. If you are a current TCSD teacher and you are taking either the Go Math PD or the CCC PD, you will also be attending these courses in person so you can more easily interact with your colleagues (from a safe distance).
