The purpose of the Woodlynne Child Study Team's evaluation is to determine if a student has a disability and is eligible for special education and related services. The criteria for making these judgments are outlined in the New Jersey Administrative Code, Title 6A, Chapter 14(N.J.A.C. 6A:14). Please see the general CST process below.
4. Eligibility: Once evaluations are completed, an eligibility meeting is scheduled to determine whether the student is eligible for special education and related services. The case manager or evaluator will review the evaluation results and answer all questions. The case manager will discuss the rationale for determination of eligibility or non-eligibility.
NJAC 6A:14-1.2 District eligibility for assistance under IDEA Part B item 18, letter (h):
Each district board of education shall ensure that a special education parent advisory group is in place in the district to provide input to the district on issues concerning students with disabilities.
As a Special Education Parent Advisory Committee, we act as a liaison on behalf of parents to provide feedback on District strengths and areas of need and serve as a resource to parents by communicating information about the special education process and programs currently available in the Woodlynne Public School District.
What is SEPAC?
The Intervention and Referral Service process is a primary way in which teachers are supported to increase the achievement in students who demonstrate: the inability to focus on a learning task, are not completing assignments, are not achieving or demonstrating skill levels based on testing data, have declining or failing grades, absenteeism, tardiness, falling asleep, the inability to remain seated or to work in a structured environment or have the potential to drop out of school.
Parents/Guardians are active participants in the development and support of the determined I&RS plans. A case manager is assigned to each student who has an I&RS plan to monitor the implementation of the plan and provide data and feedback to the team at regular intervals to determine if the selected interventions were successful and need to be revised.
