2019-2020 January DC/TL/CS Timeline

What We Do
    1. Determine Case Manager for all new students entering the campus. Selections should be determined based on program the student is involved in, classes where the teacher is assigned to support, or extracurricular activities for those students receiving monitoring through Support Facilitation who do not have direct contact with a special education teacher. 
    2. Provide any updated teacher schedules to the Campus Coordinator as schedules are adjusted.
    3. Meet with SpEd Case Managers (by the second Friday of the month) to discuss students receiving their services and let administration know if there is are any problems (i.e. schedule does not  allow  for a SpEd teacher to provide services, Service providers are not going to assigned class or pulling student for ARD'd SpEd time, accommodations are not being provided, etc).  
    4. Complete the Monthly Special Education Roster/SHARS Documentation google doc - follow instructions outlined in the Monthly Medicaid Roster procedures - Due by the 5th of each month 
    5. Complete and submit Monthly Count information to campus coordinator by January 16 (put the actual day the count was taken in the blank).
