REMINDER: Instructional Minutes Requirement for Students with Disabilities

School staff are reminded that students with disabilities are to receive the same daily/annual instructional minutes as their non-disabled peers, unless otherwise specified in their Individualized Education Program (IEP). Students receiving special education services may not begin loading school buses prior to the school’s scheduled dismissal time, nor may they be dismissed early to lunch or recess.
