Accommodation forms are a plan for teachers to use the following year to encourage student success. Complete one for each student that has had an IT meeting this year and has accommodations, modifications and/or interventions that are working. You will meet with the next year’s teachers during our beginning of the year in-service and go over the plan.
Use the form that best fits the situation and/or your learning style. Please have this form filled out before the end of this year.
