COVID-19 Novel Coronavirus Information and Resources for Families

COVID-19 Novel Coronavirus Information and Resources for Families

Updated May 22, 2020

We have gathered some resources to help you as you try to figure out what learning can look like for your child right now. If you’d like support, please call, email, or complete an online intake. We are an independent resource for information and informal problem-solving.

Here’s how to reach OEO:

Here are some questions that you might have right now:

How can Continuous Learning work for my child with an IEP?

While the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI) has created a sample template for a continuous learning plan that your district might use, you should also bring your own questions and concerns to that conversation.  Think about the following questions to include in your discussion:

  1. What are your current goals for your student during this time?
  2. What are you most worried about right now?
  3. What does a typical day look like at home?
  4. What supports do you need from your IEP team right now?

For more information about OSPI’s continuous learning resources for special education, please contact OSPI:

Is there an exception to allow some in-person services at schools?

The Governor included a narrow exception to allow schools to provide limited services, if required by state or federal law, at school sites but only with required distancing and public health measures. This exception is rare and focused on necessary and essential services that can only be provided directly, and only at school facilities. For details, look at OSPI’s Novel Coronavirus page, under the “Allowable Building Activities” tab: https://www.k12.wa.us/about-ospi/press-releases/novel-coronavirus-covid-19-guidance-resources. (Select from 10 languages at the bottom of the web page.)

How can seniors graduate on time?

Schools are focusing on helping their seniors get to graduation. The best places to look for information for individual students include:

  • School counselors
  • School principals
  • State Board of Education:
    • Phone: 360-725-6025 (Phone interpretation available) TTY: 360-664-3631 or Email: sbe@k12.wa.us (Additional time needed for translation of languages other than English)

Where can I find more information and resources?

The Washington State Coronavirus Response website offers information and resources on COVID-19 updates, childcare, food/lunch resources, school closures and distance learning, graduation requirements, public health updates, and more: https://www.coronavirus.wa.gov/.
