    Specially Designed Instruction Live Learning Sessions:  Beginning April 20, special education service delivery is evolving.  With the start of 4th quarter, new learning lessons, and grading, the delivery of support will provide increased direct instruction focusing on IEP (Individualized Education Plan) goals. Students will receive live specially designed instruction (SDI) lessons from one or more of our special education teachers throughout the week and for the remainder of the school year based on IEP needs.  

    Every Monday morning, parents/guardians will get an email from their child's Service Coordinator to share learning links to instructor sessions that your child is asked to participate in in order to receive these important special education services.  On the appropriate days/times students will join the assigned small groups through the Zoom link(s) to receive recommended specially designed instructional lessons.  

    During the SDI learning sessions, special education teachers may outline any accommodations to grade level learning and assignments that will increase success for the week.  This will ensure that assignments can be completed according to needs and reduce student work stress.

    If for some reason a studnet is unable to participate in a session(s), parents/guardians can contact their Service Coodinator and if possible, reschedule for another mutually agreed upon time for the week.  If unable to reschedule, then the session that was missed will have been recorded. The video recording will be emailed to the parent/guardian, so that the student can watch the session at a later time and still receive their instruction. 

    If you have questions about the learning your child is doing, you can contact either your child's Service Coordinator or their Service Provider(s) during the virtual office hour time or through email. 

    Virtual Office Hours: 1:00 p.m. - 1:30 p.m. Monday - Thursday, Friday by apprintment only

    • To participate in virtual office hours check parent & student email each Monday morning.  Virtual office hour links for the entire week are emailed directly to parent/guardian from Principal Gill and to student's DVUSD email by the teacher every Monday morning by 8:30 a.m.  They are also available on the teachers' Canvas pages.
