Important Information About ID Moderate and AU

Jan. 24, 2018

 

We are in the second year of a four-year plan to improve how we serve students enrolled in ID Moderate and AU classes.

 

By 2020, all such students at the middle and high levels will attend their base school, and elementary students will attend regional programs closer to home.

 

They will be served by Extended Content Standards (ECS) classes.

 

We look forward to the positive changes that come with this continued transition of assigning students to their base school or a school as close to home as possible.

  • Students in some cases will be able to attend school with their siblings and neighborhood peers;
  • Students will have more opportunities to become an integral part of their school community;
  • Students will have more opportunities to engage in community-based instruction and job training within the communities where they live;
  • In most cases, travel to and from school with be shorter.

 

All students will continue to receive special education and related services as outlined in their IEP and instruction tailored to their unique needs.

 

If a student has transportation accommodations and/or modifications outlined in their IEP, they will continue to receive special transportation as a related service.

 

We are offering two opportunities next week for parents to learn more about the Extended Content Standards classes:

  • Jan. 30 from noon to 1 p.m. at Crossroads FLEX High School, at 5651 Dillard Drive, Cary
  • Jan. 31 from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at Crossroads II, 110 Corning Road, Cary

To ensure we have ample materials and space, please RSVP at 919-858-3149.
