I am the School Social Worker on the Child Study Team at Liberty Corner School and Mount Prospect School. The Child Study Team also includes the School Psychologist and a Learning Consultant. If a child is referred to the Child Study Team for an evaluation, we must first determine whether an evaluation is in order. We do so at a planning meeting of which the parent is always a part. If an evaluation is deemed necessary, we then work as a team to assess the youngster and determine whether they are Eligible for Special Education and Related Services.
If you ever have any questions about the special education process, always feel free to contact me.
As a parent, there are often times we want to reach out to community resources, but often we do not know where to turn. I am always available to discuss any concerns you might have regarding your child and provide you with a list of qualified professionals.
In regard to progress reports for classified students, these documents will be completed for students who have goals and objectives that need to be assessed. Those progress reports will be available to you on 11/09/16 for the first marking period, on 1/27/17 for the second marking period, on 4/07/17 for the third marking period and on 6/09/17 for the fourth marking period. If you have questions regarding this process, please contact Joanne Arvay at Special Services. She can be reached at 204-2565 ext. 131.
