Presenters – John Worthington, Esq., LEGAL ONE Education Law Specialist; Geta Vogel, LEGAL ONE Mental Health and Wellness Coordinator

In this episode, we will discuss important dates and tasks with respect to claims for compensatory services arising from the COVID-19 pandemic (March 2020 – September 1, 2021) and the tasks all districts must complete as part of unique legal requirements for this time period. The need to hold meetings for all students and document IEP team determinations and the services provided to students to address FAPE denials will be addressed. In addition, unique requirements with respect to the students and parents with whom IEP team meetings are required, as well as service determinations and provision of services when appropriate, will be addressed.
