Summer is over, we are over a week into school, and it almost feels like the time off didn’t really happen!  If you are like me I love my time off but am always excited for the beginning of the new school year.  It is so exciting and this year I was particularly excited.   Our Professional Development was FANTASTIC!  We received rave reviews on every session.  Beginning our year like that really helps in meeting our Vision 2015 Goal 4: All schools are staffed, resourced, and equipped to support student needs.

Please notice that our Technical Assistance Manual (general documents), the one page Speech Language Newsletter (general documents), and the Speech Language Requirements for Evaluation/Reevaluation Chart (evaluations) have all been updated on our blog for your convenience.  We have also posted all the coding for IEPs (annual reviews) that can sometimes trip you up when attempting to write IEPs or have students push from Infinite Campus to EdPlan.

In addition for your convenience we have included the links for the Initial Speech Language Only Evaluations and Dismissal from Speech Language Services via google docs. which can be found under the evaluation tab.

We are now active on Twitter (@SLPs_JCPS) and Pinterest.  Please follow us—Dr. Hargens does!

  1. I am looking for a copy of pages 1-26 of ‘Following Directions’ grade 5-6 by Creative Teaching Press. I tore the pages out age ago to Xerox and now can’t find them! Email me if you have them to Pony to me. Thanks Duana
