Special education kindergarten through grade 12
Anoka-Hennepin will continue to provide a continuum of special education services to students with Individualized Education Plans (IEPs) no matter the learning scenario.
Like previous school years, students will be provided with instruction and services related to individual IEP goals and objectives, however, modifications may be made to existing IEPs. Any such changes will be discussed with families before or as school starts.
As always, differentiated and individualized instruction will be provided for meaningful instruction. Academic and behavior interventions will continue. Evaluations will be conducted to support with IEPs.
There will be collaborative meetings with grade-level/content-area teachers to ensure the use of differentiated instructional strategies to support students receiving special education services as they engage with grade-level standards-based instruction.
Anoka-Hennepin special education employees are prepared to be flexible and responsive. Even if the learning scenario changes during the school year, IEP services will continue to be provided in the least restrictive environment.
Students will be provided with instructional materials, e.g. devices, manipulative, independent work, projects, and more as needed.
Like other Anoka-Hennepin families, special education families can also opt for distance learning only.
