• School Facilitators
    The special education facilitator has responsibility for working directly with classroom teachers and building principals to ensure effective programming for students with disabilities. All issues surrounding the development, implementation and appropriateness of Individualized Education Plans (IEPS) for students with disabilities are addressed by the Facilitator.

    As a liaison to the schools, the Facilitator responds to all requests for assistance from school personnel regarding programming issues for students with disabilities. They cooperate with school staff and parents to resolve issues of conflict. Teacher support is a primary responsibility.

    In addition to programming issues, the Facilitator is responsible for coordinating the process for determining eligibility for students with disabilities. They schedule, chair and document all eligibility committee meetings.

    Collaboration with the School Based Team, Student Sevices Team, Central Office Staff and Community Agencies is also a responsibility of the Facilitators. They are an integral part of these teams and participate in activities on an ongoing basis.
    Special Education Facilitators are part of the Response to Intervention teams at the Elementary and Middle School Level.
