Shortening a student's school day is a serious intervention that results in students missing significant amounts of instruction and other educational opportunities. However, in rare, limited circumstances, it may be acceptable for individualized education program (IEP) teams to choose a shortened school day for a student with a disability. In making this decision the IEP team must clearly document its justification for doing so and document discussion of several requirements. In this webinar, we will discuss the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction's guidance around shortened school days.
