Resources for Parents/Guardians


    Every student at RRC has an Individual Education Plan (IEP). A meeting to update the IEP must be held annually. The IEP meeting includes parents, service providers, the case manager, administrator and any other person that the parent or student wishes to attend the meeting. If requested, the service coordinator with Alta Regional will be invited. During this meeting, the student’s progress is reviewed. Goals and objectives from the previous year are reviewed along with services. Goals and services for the next year are determined as a team. Every third year, the IEP team will complete a review (triennial) involving in-depth evaluation, including educational testing or a review of records and a health review.


    Please talk with your case manager if you want to schedule a meeting in addition to your regularly scheduled annual meeting. This meeting may include some or all of the IEP team members.


    Students who are over the age of fifteen must have an Individual Transition Plan (ITP). The purpose of the ITP is to plan activities to help students make the transition from school to community, with an emphasis on educational skills, vocational skills and recreation/community activities/independent living. The ITP will be updated concurrently with the IEP meeting.


    Students whose behavior impedes their ability to learn will have a Behavior Intervention Plan (BIP). The behavior plan will be reviewed yearly at the IEP meeting to determine progress on behavior to identify strategies and protocol for the individual students.


    You will be given a complete copy of the IEP for your records.

    Some students have additional related instructional services, such as, Speech, Adapted PE (APE), Occupational Therapy (OT), Physical Therapy (PT), Vision Instruction (VI), and nursing services based on need as determined by assessment. If your student does not receive a service that you believe they need, please contact your case manager and discuss your concern.


    Once caseloads have been determined, service providers will provide case managers with their schedules and this information will be relayed to do. You can ask your student’s case manager for the names and contact information of your students providers.


    We strive to provide ongoing skill development outside of the related instructional service time. For example, if your student receives speech and language services, your student’s speech language pathologist, case manager and team works together to provide ongoing skill development and reinforcement of skills training through-out the school day.



    Designated Instructional Services-Speech, APE, OT, PT and Vision

    RRC strives to provide clear, accurate and transparent communication with families. We recognize that we have many skilled and caring staff who work with our students. All staff are encouraged to communicate with Case Manager and Administrator anytime they witness an interaction with a student that feels or seems unusual in any way. Communication with Parent will come from Case Manager or Administrator with facts of the incident and what is being done. Behavior Emergency incidents will be communicated to parents on the day the incident occurred and Behavior Emergency Report will come home with student.


    Case Managers are responsible for communicating progress and IEP specific information to Parent/Guardian. We discourage staff from using cell phones to communicate with families. We will continue using the Remind Application for communication from the classroom regarding daily updates, photos and quick messages. Instructional assistants are not responsible for providing information regarding student progress or concerns. They will direct parents to Case Manager or Principal
