Dear Bulldog Families,
I hope this finds you and your family well and enjoying the abundant sunshine this summer.
As the 2018-2019 school year draws near I wanted to share with you some updates to our department. The office of Pupil Personnel Services has its own tab on the school’s beautiful new website under Support Services. This includes Special Education (IEP and CSE), Section 504 Accommodation Plans, McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance as well as the home pages for our School Psychologists, Occupational Therapy (OT), Physical Therapy (PT), Speech & Language, CORAL and the Special Education staff. I encourage you to visit the new webpage and explore the resources that are continually being added.
All students who have an IEP (Individualized Education Plan with Special Education services) or a Section 504 Plan are required by law to have their plans reviewed and updated yearly, known as the Annual Review. For this school year, all CSE and 504 Plan meetings will be held on Thursdays. For your planning purposes our office will be sending a letter to you in late September with the projected month and Thursday date for your child’s meeting.
One of my goals this year is to provide a monthly e-newsletter to families, meaning it will be an electronic newsletter on the Honeoye Central School’s webpage. The first newsletter will be both an e-newsletter and a paper copy mailed home to you. I am hopeful that this can be a way to communicate and inform families about current issues, trends and changes in Special Education.
Finally, I would like to extend an invitation to attend an open Coffee & Conversation time to discuss broad topics that relate to the world of Support Services on Friday, September 14th from 8:30-9:30am. Future dates, times and topics will be posted on the schools’ web site under Support Services.
Please contact me with any questions or concerns at 585-229-5171 ext. 3026 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you very much for your partnership!
Margaret A. Wright
