Specialized Instruction and Student Services
The BPS Specialized Instruction and Student Services department will provide support, to the extent possible in an online environment, to continue learning for BPS students with 504 and IndividualEducation Plans (IEPs). Students with 504 Plans will be supported by their general education teachers and case managers, as appropriate. Students with IEPs will be supported by special education staff to
promote success in general education classes. Social workers, as well as Occupational, Physical, and Speech Therapists, will contact individual parents to discuss plans for those students who typically receive these services.
Samples of expectations for teachers offering specialized instruction are provided as reference for what families may see. Actual schedules will be determined according to the needs of each child.
