Navigating Special Education Legal Peril During the (Hopefully) Last COVID-19 Annual Reviews: Comegno’s Rules

Navigating Special Education Legal Peril During the (Hopefully) Last COVID-19 Annual Reviews: Comegno’s Rules

1 hour 22 minutes

After two years of virtual, hybrid, missed, extraordinary, and personnel-impacted special education programs, this annual review season will involve the most important decisions to be made by school districts in special education since passage of IDEA in 1975. 

Is a wave of compensatory education due process litigation (finally) upon us?

Identifying and accommodating special needs during COVID-19 presented unique challenges and drove extraordinary virtual and hybrid services and outcomes. Now, concerns regarding avoiding future legal claims, while candidly addressing today’s COVID-19 learning gaps, will complicate 2022 IEP Annual Reviews and require special educators to gracefully discuss progress, follow new data collection processes, and safely wordsmith the next IEPs to avoid statements which may automatically expose schools to legal claims.

How have federal and state laws changed to require new action by special educators, today?

Learn practical solutions to bring back to your team to stay on the right track during the most challenging Annual Review season on record. Most importantly, together, we will drive best practices to support our special education students and improve learning and access. In this action-packed, engaging, and entertaining webinar, we will address the following issues, and more:

  • Avoiding comp ed admissions.
  • Discerning between failure to make progress and COVID-19 “losses.”
  • How to address COVID-19 learning gaps?
  • Consistent data collection during inconsistent services.
  • Why there is a real difference between “comp ed” and “supplemental instruction.”
  • Should there be “ESY” for all?
  • Who is the new learner, and why schools need to adjust, now.
