Distance Learning Plans for Students with Disabilities

Published on: 8/12/2020

​​​Savannah-Chatham County Public School System is dedicated to providing quality education to all students during the virtual learning period.  Distance Learning Plans will be created for each student with a disability to outline how IEPs and 504 Plans are to be implemented.

The District Learning Plan will assess the student's needs and identify action items as part of the plan. Parents will be contacted during preplanning to schedule a Distance Learning Plan meeting. Review the purpose and process of the DLP here.  Specialized classes may include any combination of direct, real time instruction, individual or group instruction via audio and/or video conferencing and student directed activities.

Priorities for Specialized Instruction include:

  • Focus on the health, safety, and welfare of our students and staff members
  • Provide a free and appropriate public education (FAPE)
  • Collaborate with parents/guardians throughout the remote learning model to provide students with disabilities a Distance Learning Plan of prioritized supports and accommodations, in light of current circumstances.
Read the General Guidance on Specialized Instruction Distance Learning Update here.  

Behavior-based consultation may be scheduled by completing the Behavior Request form. Parents will be contacted for consultation. Specialized instruction behavioral staff will be available by request for consultation or coaching via audio/video conferencing.  Academic assistance may be scheduled by completing the Academic Support Request form. Academic supports will be provided as needed.
