Exceptional Student Support
We believe that:
- Providing special education and related services in any setting is essential to improving outcomes for our children.
- Continued support and services are critical to the ongoing development of our most vulnerable population of students.
- Our exceptional students need a very intentional plan on how to address potential learning loss and acceleration needs due to traditional school abruptly ending in the Spring.
- Providing the support and services, given the parental choices for learning environment and the current status of COVID concerns within our community, is critical to the safety and security of parents and family members.
- Investing in professional learning and flexible instructional tools to assist teachers in achieving high levels of student engagement regardless of the teaching environment.
Access, resources and supports will be considered as IEP teams review plans for individual students including:
- Student’s access to technology
- Student’s access to academic skills necessary to engage with instructional materials
- Student’s access to executive skills necessary to participate in distance learning
- Student’s cognitive needs that may impact access to distance learning
- Student’s access to communication to support engaging with virtual curriculum (e.g. verbal/written communication skills)
- Student’s behavior and social/emotional supports required to access virtual curriculum.
Our Exceptional Student Services team will work with the family to ensure that the student’s Individualized Education Plan (IEP) is developed in a way that reflects the appropriate modifications and/or accommodations in order to meet the requirement for a Free and Appropriate Public Education (FAPE). The development of services designed at Tulsa Virtual Academy will be on a student by student basis as determined appropriate by the student’s IEP Team.
