Dear Parents of Exceptional Children
We at Madison County Schools believe the health, safety, and well-being of our students and staff are our top priorities. With the recent information regarding the coronavirus (COVID19) in the news, we want to take a moment to reassure you that we will continue to take extreme precautions as we work to meet the needs of our students. We are working diligently to provide instruction in various forms through activities sent home and remote learning opportunities for our students with disabilities.
While Madison County School buildings are closed, IEP meetings will be held through phone conferences or other virtual means. Your participation is greatly needed as we work together to design special services to support your child.
Per federal and State guidance, once normal school operations resume, we will consider necessary compensatory education for any special education student who misses services. Please note that no services are required for special education students by law during any time period when regular education students are not receiving educational services.
We know that these recent world events may be creating apprehension and anxiety. Please know that we are doing all we can to support families to maintain a safe, healthy learning environment during these challenging times. We will keep you updated as additional information becomes available. In the meantime, if you have any questions or concerns, please contact me at email@example.com .
Dr. Christiaan Ramsey
