The COVID-19 public health emergency has had a tremendous impact on the provision of special education services across the country. As more students are returning to schools full time in Wisconsin, we will discuss the importance of accurately identifying current levels of academic and functional performance in light of each student’s unique circumstances. When reviewing Individualized

Education Programs (IEPs), IEP teams should examine both progress on IEP goals as well as progress in age or grade level curriculum to determine if and how additional services or compensatory services are needed and what options for special education service delivery will best meet the needs of each student moving forward.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand school and district responsibility for providing a Free and Appropriate Public Education (FAPE) during the 2020-2021 school year through the lens of additional services and compensatory services.
  • Understand the role of monitoring progress of IEP goals to determine academic and functional growth.
  • Identify options for supporting individual student disability-related needs, IEP goals, and services.
