Family Letter #15

Transition Update

Dear Lynn Public Schools Families,

I am writing with an update on plans for the expansion of in-person learning.  Last week, you were provided the timeline with specific dates for students to return.  Since then, we have been collecting your input and refining our plans.  There are two changes to our plans that I hope will be welcomed.

First, a reminder to all families that, in keeping with the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education guidance, any family may choose to remain in remote learning for the remainder of the school year.  Students who choose to remain in remote learning will continue to receive live instruction and supports.  A choice to remain in remote learning will not impact a student’s ability to be promoted to the next grade or graduate from high school.   For families who have chosen in-person learning for the remainder of the school year, I would like to share the following updates:

  • Kindergarten (AM / PM), 1, and 2 will now begin five days of instruction beginning April 5th.
  • Grades 3-5 will begin five days of instruction beginning April 12th.
  • There are no changes to the middle school and high school timeline for expanding in-person learning.

Moving the timeline up to begin five days of in-person learning for all elementary students is something about which we are excited.  It is also cause for additional planning and preparation which continues in earnest.  You can count on additional communication directly from your student’s school.  I wanted to get this information to you as quickly as possible to allow you to plan accordingly.  For your convenience, I have pasted graphics with a timeline for all schools as well as the hours.  As always, please contact your student’s school with questions or concerns.

Respectfully,
Patrick Tutwiler, PhD

Special Education Letter

Dear Families,

During the week of March 29, 2021, the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education’s Office of Public School Monitoring (PSM) will conduct a Tiered Focused Monitoring Review of the Lynn Public School District. The Office of Public School Monitoring visits each district and charter school every three years to monitor compliance with federal and state special education and civil rights regulations. Areas of review related to special education include student assessments, determination of eligibility, the Individualized Education Program (IEP) Team process, and IEP development and implementation. Areas of review related to civil rights include bullying, student discipline, physical restraint, and equal access to school programs for all students.

Parent outreach is an important part of the review process. The review chairperson from the Office of Public School Monitoring will send all parents of students with disabilities an online survey that focuses on key areas of their child’s special education program. Survey results will contribute to the development of a report. During the review, the Office of Public School Monitoring will interview the chairperson of the district’s Special Education Parent Advisory Council (SEPAC). Other activities may include interviews of school staff and administrators, reviews of student records, and observations.

Parents and other individuals may email Dee Wyatt, Public School Monitoring Chairperson, at Dee.Wyatt@mass.gov to request a telephone interview. If an individual requires an accommodation, such as translation, to participate in an interview, the Department will make the necessary arrangements.

Within approximately 60 business days after the review, the chairperson will provide the Lynn Public School District with a report with information about areas in which the district meets or exceeds regulatory requirements and areas in which the district requires assistance to correct or improve practices. The public will be able to access the report at www.doe.mass.edu/pqa/review/cpr/reports/.

Thank you,

Phylitia Jamerson
Administrator of Special Education
