    During this time of virtual learning, parents of students receiving special education services are reminded that if they have concerns or questions about their child's services, they should contact either the special education teacher or a facilitator at their child's school. Changes in a child's special education program can only come through the IEP meeting process. Questions and concerns can also be addressed to the school administrator, or the special education department.
