Exceptional Children's Program
--- In Spanish
March 23, 2020
Clay County Schools Exceptional Children Program has been working the past couple weeks to prepare
for online special education and related service provisions for students. Due to Governor Roy Cooper’s
order to close schools and mandated social distancing, our providers are unable to conduct new face-to-
face evaluations until school resumes a normal schedule or when Governor Cooper lifts the mandate.
We will continue to hold IEP Annual Review meetings and Re-Evaluation meetings without testing by
phone conference however cannot proceed with Initial Eligibility Referral meetings if the evaluations
were not complete prior to March 13th. Likewise, we will not be accepting new referrals, as we are not in
the capacity to conduct those referral meetings without teachers being available to provide the data
necessary for the IEP Team to analyze and discuss to determine the need to proceed with an evaluation
to determine eligibility. Once Governor Cooper lifts the mandate, we will resume accepting referrals and
conducting the required referral meetings as well as conducting face-to-face evaluations that were
requested prior to this mandate.
Thank you for your understanding and patience.
