During the COVID-19 Crisis

In accordance with the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), it is our priority to ensure that all students with disabilities have access to a free and appropriate public education.  Our Department of Special Education has worked in collaboration with the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education to continue providing educational services for all students during the current Covid-19 school closures.  If any questions arise regarding Special Education services for your student, please contact your child’s special education teacher. Students with Individualized Educational Programs (IEPs) will continue to receive instructional and support services through the following mediums: technology-based virtual learning environment and traditional paper-based learning packets.  For the students who will be receiving paper-based learning packets, the teachers will work with them via zoom, email, and/or by phone to monitor and assess assignments completed by the student.

If you are unable to successfully address a concern with your child’s special education teacher or have a question or complaint regarding the services being provided, please contact Ms. Kristen Dancy, Coordinator for Special Education, at 314-231-2337, Ext. 243.
