Published: March 24th, 2020

Special Education Directors,

ADE/ESS has developed a Special Education Guidance for COVID-19 webpage that is an extension of the main ADE Guidance to Schools on COVID-19 webpage. The ESS page contains guidance and resources related to special education for students with disabilities for Arizona’s public education agencies (districts, charters, state institutions, and secure care schools) as they navigate the COVID-19 response.

The ESS COVID-19 contains a number of content tabs:

  • School Closures: Clarifications and Guidance
  • Communication from Federal Oversight Bodies at the USDOE
  • Communication from ADE/ESS
  • Special Education Resources
  • Special Education Questions & Answers

Special Education Resources and Q & A are currently going through final revisions and should be published tomorrow, Tuesday, March 23.  Additionally, ESS is hosting a webinar for special education administrators on Thursday, March 26. Further information will also be sent tomorrow.

If you have questions or comments, please direct them to the ESS Inbox. Thank you all for your hard work and flexibility during this time.
