Support for Diverse Learners
Virginia is committed to providing a Free Appropriate Public Education (FAPE) through a virtual/distance learning platform during the extended school closure due to the COVID–19 pandemic.
The Virginia Department of Education has created a hub complete with resources for diverse learners. These resources include:
- Frequently asked questions for special education and student services.
- A statement on youth in foster care during COVID-19.
- Tips for virtual IEP meetings.
- Instructional resources supporting students with disabilities.
Be sure to connect with your child’s school district and the VDOE for guidance and support during this time.
