Update re: Students on 504 Plans
Dear Parents and Guardians,
I hope you and your family are doing well and staying healthy as we move through the summer months. I can’t believe August is just around the corner! As you may be aware, at the School Board Meeting last week, the Board of Education voted on the school district’s plan for reopening in August. The school district will be returning to school with a Hybrid Learning Model, which includes variations based generally on the county risk-level alerts (Levels 1 - 4). Information was also released last week about the school district's virtual option for the upcoming school year.
Many of you are probably wondering what the hybrid model and/or virtual learning will look like for students on 504 Plans. Please be assured that regardless of whether you choose to send your child to school in-person or enroll in the Perrysburg Schools Virtual Campus, the accommodations in his/her Section 504 Plan will be provided.
For students in grades K-6 who are attending in-person following the hybrid model, 504 accommodations and/or services will be provided during the school day as they have in the past. Virtual and home learning activities will also be provided in a manner consistent with your student’s 504 Plan.
For students in grades 7-12 who are attending in-person following the hybrid model, 504 accommodations and/or services will be provided during the days your child is attending in-person. Virtual learning activities will also be provided in a manner consistent with your student’s 504 Plan on the days your child is learning from home.
For students in grades K-12 who choose the full virtual option through the Perrysburg Schools Virtual Campus, 504 accommodations will continue to be provided virtually by school employees. The school district is in the process of compiling a Frequently Asked Questions document that will be shared with families soon. It will include a part on Section 504 Plans. We understand that the decisions families need to make require as much information as possible and we are working diligently to provide accurate and thorough information.
Thank you for your patience and understanding as we navigate through the various unknowns during these unique circumstances.
