How to Track Your Child's IEP Services During the COVID-19 School Closures

Published April 21st, 2020 by Stacey Gahagan

We hope your family is healthy and surviving the challenges brought on by COVID-19. We recognize this is an uncertain time, but it is not a time when your child is without rights. It is very important that we make a concerted effort to make sure that our children are receiving the special education services that they need and to which they are entitled. It remains unclear if the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction is going to order school districts to provide services to students with disabilities; however, we read the guidance from the federal government to mandate that your child receive services that are included in his/her IEP.

We believe it is important for parents to track and assess what level of service their child is receiving each week, rather than trying to rely on memory or the records of the school district months from now. Therefore, we are providing a Weekly Special Education Service Delivery Tracking sheet.

We are providing this as a service to North Carolina families to help you gather and maintain the information you may need in the future.

Should you have any questions regarding this form, or any education law matter, please feel free to contact our office at (919) 942-1430 or complete our contact form.
