Updates regarding timeline changes due to COVID restrictions 2021: 

Referral season has closed and we are working on gathering data on referred students as well as administering universal screeners to 2nd and 5th grade students. 
Some referred students may be invited in small groups for testing this spring. Those that are unable to attend can defer attending testing to the late summer/fall. 
Our multi-disciplinary selection team (MST) will meet in May/June to view student testing & portfolios for identification purposes. Letters will be sent to families conveying committee decisions as soon as possible. 
updated 3/29/21

Referrals for services next school year are accepted starting the first Monday in December through the third Friday in January each year. See the Referral & Identification Process for details and instructions.
