The following policies are written for students with disabilities who have either an Individualized Education Program (IEP) or a 504 Plan.
Prior to registration for an ACCESS course, the counselor shall contact the student’s case manager for a review of the educational needs of the student based on the requirements of the IEP or the 504 Plan.
If a distance learning course is determined to be appropriate for the student based on the IEP or 504 Plan, and the student takes such a course during the implementation period of the IEP or 504 Plan, the local school will be responsible for providing any supplementary aids and services as required in the IEP or 504 Plan that are not supported within the online environment and for maintaining communication with the ACCESS teacher.
Counselors will work with the special education case manager to ensure that the IEP or 504 Plan is made available to the ACCESS teacher and support center director. The ACCESS teacher must be informed of his or her responsibilities for implementing the IEP or 504 Plan.
Connecting ACCESS Staff and Teachers is an informational resource for D2L users who are teachers or facilitators. CAST includes, but is not limited to, how-to documentation, professional development opportunities and discussion boards
